My research interest is focused mainly on the molecular basis of rare metabolic diseases, specifically on glycogen storage disease type Ib. I am interested in the identification of cellular, molecular, and genetic mechanisms underlying the cause of the development of neutropenia in GSD Ib patients. Furthermore, the targeted therapy approach using small molecules and stem cell biology are also in the focus of my research.
I am a molecular geneticist with expertise in determining the precise diagnostics of rare metabolic diseases and differential diagnosis in patients with overlapping phenotypes. Also, I have experience in the functional characterization of novel variants and stem cell therapies.
