Over the last thirty years, our knowledge of human genetics has exploded. We have progressed from the concept of a gene and the basic structure of the DNA molecule to a detailed map of the human genome and an understanding of how genetic variation can contribute to both rare and more common, complex diseases. This understanding is informing on the development of novel therapies and better treatments. But there is still much we do not understand. FutureNeuro will consolidate and grow human genetics research in Ireland by connecting researchers across disease areas and contributing to large international discovery efforts.
