New Therapeutic Directions

After three years of persistence and hard work, a multi-disciplinary research team led by Prof. H.Y. Edwin Chan of the School of Life Sciences has identified a novel genetic mutation that leads to spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA).  The work has been published in the 2014 September issue of Journal of Medical Genetics, a leading international peer-reviewed journal in human genetics. This is the first time that researchers from Hong Kong have identified a novel gene mutation that leads to SCA.  This important finding has put Hong Kong on the world map of SCA research, and also shed new light on finding therapeutic directions.
