Review for cureCADASIL, Plainsboro, NJ, USA
Currently I am carrying out biomedical research investigating CADASIL disease under the guidance of Dr Joeseph Arboleda. My first interaction with the CADASIL association was in June 2013 when I attended the associations’ conference in Boston.
The Boston conference was a unique experience for me as it was the first scientific conference that I have been to that was patient lead. The conference not only helped me to further empathise with people who have CADASIL but inspired me to come back to America, to work under Dr Joeseph Arboleda on this rare condition. As such I applied for the CADASIL associations 10 week summer fellowship program which afforded me the opportunity to carry out research into blood based biomarkers of the disease. So far we have had promising results and we are looking to publish them with the next few months.
