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

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. ​
