Microcefalie e Atassie: i risultati delle nostre ricerche presentati alla Convention Telethon

I gruppi di ricerca del prof. Di Cunto e del Prof. Tempia studiano le cause genetiche di microcefalie e atassie.
I loro ultimi studi, realizzati grazie al sostegno di Fondazione Telethon e presentati alla Convention scientifica, aprono la strada a possibili nuovi approcci terapeutici.
