Lessons learned and further road to the therapies of genetic neurological disorders. What we have, unmet needs and future perspectives – XXXII Ottorino Rossi Award

IRCCS Fondazione Mondino – Berlucchi Hall – 18 November 2022

Download programme


The starting point and inspiration for the scientific programme is the lecture by Prof. Muntoni, who will explain how, in recent years, translational research has managed to find a cure for spinal muscular atrophy, an extremely severe genetic disease that was long considered incurable. This was achieved through a combination of deep phenotyping, better understanding of the disease pathogenesis, and the development of innovative technologies aimed at correcting the underlying gene defect. Research into other dramatic neuromuscular diseases, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy, on the other hand, has not yet been translated into effective therapeutic strategies, highlighting the existence of conceptual and methodological difficulties that  remain hard to overcome.

The conference will highlight recent advances, unmet needs, and future perspectives in the quest for novel therapeutic strategies, looking at key examples in the fields of paediatric and adult inherited neurological disorders. Prof. Muntoni’s lecture will be followed by two general lectures, the first dealing with the difficulties in designing clinical trials in rare diseases (especially those of childhood), and the second providing an overview of innovative technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of hereditary disorders. In the afternoon session, lectures will cover four neurological disease types (frontotemporal dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, metabolic diseases, and Parkinson’s disease), focusing on their genetic basis, pathogenetic mechanisms, and most importantly, on current and novel therapeutic perspectives, whose development, although still conditioned by criticalities and difficulties, is destined to change the natural history of these still incurable conditions.
