The Merkel Lab just got the grant proposal "Genome editing for DMPK-CTG-repeat expansion via receptor mediated targeted delivery of CRISPR-Cas9 vectors to myoblasts" funded by the German Society for Muscle Disease Patients. 

This project is a collaboration between our lab and Prof. Schoser's lab at the Friedrich-Baur Institute within LMU. Congrats especially to Aditi and Elena for amazing preliminary work that led to this application!
