Scientific Support

In the Scientific Community, our hope for the future.

Only scientific research, combined with the sense of solidarity of those who support us, can give a smile of hope to those affected by a mutation of the RBCK1 gene. A disease for which there is currently no cure.

Care that can only be conceived and developed thanks to constant research work.
