Conversation with Prof. Dr. Hidde Haisma

This conversation demonstrated the relevance of gene doping research. As a credited WADA board member for research on gene doping, Hidde Haisma introduced us to the current state of research and explained us his findings on gene doping so far, but especially also the challenges research faces. This was very relevant information for us, needed in order to characterize what problem we actually wanted to solve, and to propose a mechanism. Based on this, we quickly identified that next generation sequencing can be key to solving these issues.
