In the first COST-Aniridia STSM in October 2019, researchers in Saarland University Hospital, (Lorenz Latta) and Radboud University (Jo Huiqing Zhou) took the first steps to create a transcriptome blueprint of limbal epithelial cells in healthy as well as aniridic eyes, using aniridia samples from Saarland University Hospital and single cell RNA-seq technique, available at Dr. Zhou’s lab. These findings will provide insights into the understanding of limbal stem cell biology as well as into pathophysiologic changes of the disease. This collaboration was made possible thanks to COST actions networking tools
