Rare Neurodegenerative Diseases

CIPF Seminars: Wilson’s disease & NBIA-PLAN

Friday, July 16 - 2021. The CIPF seminars of predoctoral and postdoctoral researchers have been given by components of the unit of Rare Neurodegenerative Diseases. The first one by Ana Sánchez was focused on the characterization of useful biomarkers for the diagnosis of Wilson's disease based on the profile of microRNAs. The second seminar by Candela Machuca was about the generation of the human cell model based on iPSCs for PLAN (PLA2G6-associated neurodegeneration), which is the second most frequent NBIA (Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation) form. Congratulations Ana & Candela!
