Generating a mouse model for a unique titin-associated cardiomyopathy phenotype
- 25 January 2014 to 31 December 2015
- Awards: Pump-priming Awards
A mouse model has been generated for a cardiomyopathy-causing titin missense mutation. This model will help us to gain insight into disease mechanisms.
