When good genes go bad...

...Our lab steps in to fight them!

The focus of our research is the identification of gene mutations that cause severe, chronic diseases that have no known causes or cures. We also test why and how these genetic changes cause these diseases, for clues to how we may undo their effects. The patients who will benefit from our work include both adults and children with rare diseases, and their families- Help us make the future brighter!


Quand nos gènes partent en vrille... notre labo est prêt à intervenir!

Notre objectif? Identifier des gènes dont certaines mutations peuvent être à l'origine de maladies chroniques sévères, aux causes inconnues et actuellement incurables. Nous étudions l'impact de ces modifications sur le développement de la maladie, ce qui nous permet d'en comprendre les mécanismes et d'explorer de nouvelles voies thérapeutiques. Qu'ils soient adultes ou enfants, les patients souffrant d'une maladie rare pourront bénéficier de notre travail. Aidez-nous à améliorer leur futur!
