Human Genetics

Welcome to the Human Genetics Division!

The Human Genetics division bridges basic research and clinical medicine.

Our research aims are 
- to identify mutations leading to genetic diseases
- to understand the pathogenic mechanisms underlying genetic diseases
- to develop genetic therapies

Our research mainly focuses on ciliopathies, neurosensory diseases (including retinal dystrophies and hearing deficits) and brain malformations/mental retardations.
