Perixosomes are vital organelles found in virtually every human cell. Defects in these organelles can lead to perixosomal disorders. Although many of thee disorders have been characterised, there are still patients suffering from as-yet unidentified perixosomal defects. Kim Falkenberg studies such cases, investigating whether they are known diseases displaying abnormally mild phenotypes or entirely novel perixosomal diseases or genetic disease mechanisms.
