My name is Nils Bömer and on the 1st of June 2011 I started a PhD project at the department of Molecular Epidemiology at the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC). The goal of my research, which is funded by the IDEAL (Integrated research on Developmental determinants of Ageing and Longevity) project is to get more understanding in early developmental issues and late-onset disease, in this case of Osteoarthritis. During this project I will try to get more insight in the genetics behind the heritability of Osteoarthritis. My main focus in the project will be on the functional molecular mechanisms behind osteoarthritis
