Iolanda Boffa won the Young Investigator Award at the International COnference of Ureagenesis
Congratulation to Iolanda Boffa from the Nicola Brunetti's Lab, that was awarded with the Young Investigator Award at the “INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON UREAGENESIS DEFECTS AND ALLIED CONDITIONS 2022. NOVEL MODELS AND TREATMENT OPTIONS” (Valencia, Spain, 16-20 of October 2022; scientific sessions 17-19). This conference, second edition of the one held in Pontresina (Switzerland) in March 2018 seeks bringing together leading experts on ureagenesis defects and related conditions, as, for example, carbonic anhydrase 5a deficiency, pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase (P5CS) deficiency, or even defects of pyrimidine synthesis sharing highly similar steps to those of the urea cycle (like CAD deficiency). New experimental models, contributions to the understanding of these defects, and promising therapeutic avenues, should be key issues.
