Wendy Heywood awarded an MRC UCL confidence in concept award

GOSH BRC-funded, Senior research associate, Dr Wendy Heywood has been awarded £98,000 from the UCL Confidence in Concept fund to develop newly discovered biomarkers for disease stratification of mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) into a clinical assay for validation.

Earlier in the year we reported the publication of new urine markers for downstream disease pathology features of patients with MPS that could be used for early disease phenotyping and treatment monitoring. This work has now led to further funding for these markers to be developed to clinical translation.
