We collaborate with an elected Scientific Committee with experience in the diagnosis and treatment of various clinical aspects related to the Nexmif mutation, from the genetic to the neurological area. We are committed to doing everything in our power, so that scientific research can find a cure for our children, as soon as possible.
Our common goal is to promote:

  • Genetic testing in children and adults, with a history of intellectual disability, epileptic encephalopathy, and / or autism
  • Scientific research and clinical studies through fund-raising operations
  • Contacts and meetings between families and specialists to enrich the available knowledge and provide appropriate assistance to the families themselves

The Scientific Committee is a consultative and support body to the Board of Directors and represents the Association’s interface towards the scientific and academic world.
