“The families don't give up and they do believe in basic research. ” Meet Michela Fagiolini, PhD, a neuroscience researcher at Boston Children’s Hospital, who studies how brain development is altered in autism-related disorders like Rett Syndrome and CDKL5.
Thank you to all our Team Rett Runners and all those who supported the team with generous donations, cheering the team along the way and overall encouragement and support.
My daughter, Erika, is now forty years old so we have been in the Rett World for a long time. We had never heard of Rett syndrome until Erika was six years old, but neither had almost anyone else in the world!
