Development of a gene therapy strategy for
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2A (CMT2A)
L’Associazione Progetto Mitofusina2 onlus onlus supports this project on the scientific responsibility of Prof. Stefania Corti, Prof. Giacomo Pietro Comi and Prof. Nereo Bresolin, researchers and neurologists of “Centro Dino Ferrari” at University of Milan.
This project involves a young researchers team (biology and biotechnology), coordinated by Doct. Federica Rizzo at University of Milan and at IRCCS Ca’ Granda Foundation, Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Milan.
We have been collaborating with Associazione Progetto Mitofusina2 onlus actively, bridging the gap between science and society in order to sensitize towards the existence of this rare disease, actually without a cure. We supported their activities and we plan to organize other events together, establishing a continuous and challenging dialog.
