The modeling of human disorders is often performed using heterologous cells or mouse models. Human and cell type-specific models will help in a better understanding of cellular pathology, provide a platform for high throughput screening and might provide proof of principle studies for regenerative therapy.
The aim of this thesis is to generate an induced pluripotent stem cell model for Pompe Disease and use this model for the investigation of molecular mechanisms and the development of novel therapies.

The research described in this thesis was supported by the Prinses Beatrix Spierfonds/Stichting Spieren voor Spieren (grant W.OR13-21).
