Brief description Lysosomal storage disorders are a devastating set of genetic diseases with very severe clinical symptoms. In this project, we will investigate a new treatment strategy that is non-invasive and that will be applicable for a wide range of lysosomal storage disorder patients. The therapy will over-ride the molecular genetic lesion and will be preferentially targeted for patients who are at the severe end of the clinical spectrum, where treatment options are currently limited.
