The EURAS project received over 8 million euros funding from the Health Cluster of the Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme
Rare neurodevelopmental disorders of the Ras pathway continue to evade effective treatment. The EURAS consortium has been awarded over 8 million euros from the Health Cluster of the Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme to develop new effective therapies and establish a framework for early, accurate diagnosis of neurological symptoms in a specific group of RASopathies (cardio-facio-cutaneous syndrome, Costello syndrome and SYNGAP1-related encephalopathy).
