New models for rare diseases provide new insights

A team of scientists from the Medical Faculty of the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) and the IUF – Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine in Düsseldorf developed a multicellular model for human neurometabolic diseases associated with mitochondrial complex I deficiency and identified a potential therapeutic compound as well as its underlying mechanism. The results of this study were recently published in the renowned scientific journal Nature Communications.
