Melody Cools received her PhD diploma

On March 30th, Melody Cools publicly presented her PhD work and successfully received her diploma. Her research dealt with the role and regulation of amino acid transporters of the yeast vacuole used as a model to better understand equivalent proteins in the human lysosome. Study of these lysosomal transporters is important to better understand the cellular disorders caused by cystinosis, a human genetic disease. Melody will soon move to the lab of Pr. Joris Winderickx (KUL, Leuven) for a postdoc. Thanks a lot to her for her investment in this novel research topic of the lab.
