Objectives of research

The description of new phenotypes associated with known genes contributes to facilitate the diagnostic assessment and to better delineate the natural history in patients with rare diseases. The discovery of new genes opens the way to the understanding of new pathophysiological mechanisms, an essential step for the development of targeted therapies.
