  • SUMMARY:
    F. Coppieters is part of the Ophthalmic Genetics group of the Center for Medical Genetics Ghent (Ghent University). During her PhD and postdoc, she performed research in the field of inherited blindness by the identification of novel disease genes and the discovery of novel, unconventional mutation mechanisms, both coding and non-coding. From 2018 to 2019, she was one of two scientific coordinators of the NucleUZ Platform for Medical Innovation of the Ghent University Hospital, where she was responsible for innovative genome analysis for rare disorders. Since October 2019, F. Coppieters is assistant professor within RARE-MED, a Ghent University multidisciplinary consortium for basic and translational research on precision medicine for rare diseases. She is also member of the European Retinal Disease Consortium (ERDC, www.erdc.info) and the StarT Marie Curie Innovative Training Network (www.startn.eu). Her current research focuses on retinal disease modelling and new genetic therapies for inherited blindness. In specific, the group uses antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) to modulate gene expression, and aims to develop a platform for functional evaluation of ASO treatment in patient-derived 2D and 3D retinal models.
