Researchers create a worm model to investigate a rare subtype of blindness

(IDIBELL-Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute) Researchers of the group of human molecular genetics at IDIBELL, led by Julian Ceron, have created a model of C. elegans worm with homologous gene alterations to human retinitis pigmentosa. Thus, this model opens up a promising avenue to understand the pathology and investigating new efficient therapies. The study, funded by the La Marató de TV3 Foundation, has been published in the journal RNA.
