“We are excited about the prospects that the new yeast models will bring. Perlara has the expertise and platform needed to be successful in creating a very good yeast model that can be used for fast, effective drug discovery and screening. We hope to be able to move forward with further studies to repurpose existing drugs and/or develop effective, personalized treatments for chronic pancreatitis patients with CFTR and other genetic mutations”
