They have an internationally renowned research reputation and are best placed to conduct this research. Dr Tayal’s supervisors are Dr Sanjay Prasad, Professor Stuart Cook and Dr Piers Daubeney. Professor Cook’s collaborative work in the discovery of the abnormal gene (TTN) forms a key part of this research.
