      I don’t do the drug finding myself, I do the step before that – finding genes that could be targeted by drugs. I think this is really important because there are many diseases out there that we do not yet know the genetic cause of.

      Finding a gene that has an influence on the disease, and then pharmaceutical companies being able to make a drug that targets that gene, could mean treatment options where previously there were none!
