CanCell will host a semi-annual symposium with invited speakers, including professor Andrea Ballabio from Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine of Pozzuoli.
Andrea Ballabios main research interest is lysosomal regulation of various human diseases.
"Our laboratory is now focused on the study of the regulation and activation of TFEB and on determining mechanisms to activate TFEB function utilizing cell culture systems and in vivo animal models. The challenge of our current research project is to develop tools to modulate cellular clearance and to use them to treat human diseases, including Lysosomal Storage Disorders and neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s."
More information regarding the symposium will be made available in due time
