Funded Equipment For Sunderland

The Cystinosis Foundation UK chairperson, Roy Forsyth, reports on a recent visit to Sunderland University to present new equipment funded by a donation by the UK Foundation:

"As part of our ongoing work with Sunderland University into the development of ProDrug therapy for Cystinosis, we were pleased to supply the project with a High Pressure Liquid Chromatograph machine.

This is used to analyse the compounds that have been produced and is a dedicated unit for the research project. It will ensure that high quality reliable results are achieved efficiently. Funding for the machine was allocated at the start of the research but it’s only now that the serious analysis of the compounds has started that the University has requested the funding."
