Innovative CRISPR/Cas9 technology for EDMD

We are going to raise funds for the research project: "CORRECTION OF MUTATIONS in LMNA or EMD in cells of patients with muscular dystrophy of Emery-Dreifuss using CRISPR / Cas9 technology: towards a more effective treatment".

Cost of the Project: € 107,800.00

Involved Centers:

- UNIMORE Regenerative Medicine Center of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia

- CNR Institute of Molecular Genetics of Bologna - Gaslini Unit of Genoa

- Carlo Besta Neurological Institute of Milan.

This technique, also called "smart scissors", would replace portions of the mutated gene with a short gene portion in vitro.
