    The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences hosts a new neuroscience conference: SOMATIC CAG EXPANSIONS AS A THERAPEUTIC TARGET FOR HUNTINGTON’S DISEASE. Ricardo Mouro Pinto, M.Sc., Ph.D. (Center for Genomic Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital. Instructor in Neurology, Harvard Medical School. Associated
    Scientist, Program in Medical and Population Genetics, Broad Institute at MIT and Harvard) shares his insights on how targeting the DNA mismatch repair pathway to prevent somatic repeat expansions constitutes a promising therapeutic strategy for HD and other trinucleotide repeat expansion disorders.
