In honor of FA Awareness month in May, FARA is proud to present: The third annual FA Research Flash Talks series - featuring Young Investigators from FARA funded laboratories around the world. This four-part series covers key aspects of FARA funded research from gene silencing and disease mechanisms to therapeutic avenues and clinical insights. Each session includes Flash Talks from four to five Young Investigators (ie, postdocs and graduate students) moderated by an FA Community member. Each Flash Talk is limited to a maximum of five minutes and a single PowerPoint slide and is suitable for a lay audience.

Session 2 covered the following topics:

  • Using lab-grown heart cells as a model to study Friedreich's ataxia
  • Improving frataxin function with small antibodies from llamas
  • Gene therapy to prevent vision loss in FA
  • Studying iron in FA: from the gut to the cells
