Mulvihill–Smith syndrome, is a rare and complex genetic disease of unknown cause that affects different systems and organs leading to a development of progeroid disorder. We have previously detected 15 genetic variants (mutations) in the patient with this syndrome. In this Project we aim to identify which of these mutation(s) are causing the pathogenic outcome in patient. We will develop new models that will allow us to further understand the molecular mechanisms of the disease.
