Congratulations to Michal Minczuk, Pedro Pinheiro and their collaborators, who have been awarded a grant to continue their research on maternally inherited Leigh syndrome (MILS).

Cure ATP6 (a Rare Village Foundation Fund) and Cure Mito Foundation are excited to announce the collaboration between the groups of Dr. Michal Minczuk (University of Cambridge), Dr. Alessandro Prigione (University of Dusseldorf), and Dr. Steven Gray (University of Texas Southwestern) on a 2-year $400,000 MT-ATP6 research grant. This grant will allow researchers to continue their work on generating an ATP6 animal model, creating neurons from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), and exploring base editing for gene therapy for MILS.
