Starting collaboration with Prof. Baig from Faisalabad, Pakistan

Today we had our first meeting via skype with Prof. Shahid Mahmood Baig (Professor of Human Molecular Genetics) and his group members from NIBGE in Faisalabad, Pakistan.
Ilyas, who joined us last Fall, introduced us and we started to make plans to collaborate on the genetics of cardiovascular diseases. 

Our first meeting was very inspiring; first samples will be send over to us very soon and we hope to help deciphering the genetic cause of cardiac diseases in informative Pakistanian families. Stay tuned to hear about the results of this German-Pakistanian Collaboration.
