II Solidarity dinner online for scientific dissemination
On December 15, many friends of the Foundation joined us at our “2nd Online Solidarity Dinner for Scientific Dissemination”.
As guest speakers we had Dr. Antonio Zorzano, Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Barcelona who enlightened us with a brilliant and close talk on the latest scientific advances and the importance of supporting research so that these advances bear fruit. in the short term and can be applied to patients. Next, Carolina Moreno moved us all with her testimony about how her daughter Irai (see video), who was born with a serious genetic disease, has a second life thanks to gene therapy, as documented in the following video.
Finally, we want to thank all those who have contributed with their contributions, our main sponsor Werfen, the solidarity companies «Arroz a banda» Just Married, «uait uain» wine, «lindt Lindor» chocolates, Petit packaging, Sabrina Mendes and Mail and Boxes that have helped us once again to make this “online” solidarity dinner a reality.
The proceeds have exceeded 10,000 euros that will go to two research grants to continue the study of mitochondrial diseases.
