The Origins​

Robert Prior: "Being a CMT patient myself, I already knew I wanted to be involved in CMT research when I was only sixteen," says Rob Prior, PhD student in the Ludo Van Den Bosch lab at the VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research.

 

Prof. Ludo Van Den Bosch: This lab's pioneering research into Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is what led to the creation of Augustine Therapeutics. From lab to clinic, we're working hard to develop a CMT therapy to help people like Rob and his family!​

 

At the occasion of the CMT Awareness Month across Europe, you can learn more about Rob's story and the founding of Augustine in this great VIB’s article.
