Researching for a cure
The goal of the Urano Lab is to identify potential therapeutic targets by unraveling the molecular, genetic, and cellular mechanisms behind the Wolfram Syndrome phenotype.
Wolfram Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder resulting from the inheritance of two mutated copies of the WFS1 or CISD2 gene. This syndrome is characterized by juvenile-onset diabetes, optic nerve atrophy, and neurodegeneration and affects approximately 1 in 500,000 individuals.
