New strategy to identify small molecule therapies
Characterized by progressive deafness, blindness and variable balance disorder, Usher syndrome type III (USH3) is caused by destabilising mutations in the gene encoding the clarin-1 protein (CLRN1).
This webinar details a successful new strategy to identify small molecule therapies to mitigate the hearing loss associated with these mutations, highlighting the promise of this discovery approach in the quest for drugs to treat other protein-destabilising monogenic disorders. Funded by the Usher III Initiative Research Consortium, the work described here was carried out by collaborators at Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and Charles River.
