RNA-based drugs to help against Dravet Syndrome. New funding for Prof. Mallamaci’s lab

“We are using an experimental approach based on a set of RNA drugs we recently developed in our lab. The aim of this new project is to cast light on specific aspects of this method which still need to be clarified, along a pathway which – in the future – might turn this approach into a cure for patients suffering from Dravet Syndrome”.
