Webinar: Multiple Somatic Mutations Synergize to Drive Cerebral Cavernous Malformations
In this webinar, Daniel Snellings from the Duke University Medical Centre shares the role of somatic mutations in the pathogenesis of vascular malformations with specific focus on Cerebral Cavernous Malformations, Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia, and Sturge-Weber Syndrome. The goal of his work is to identify novel somatic mutations, understand the genetic mechanisms by which these mutations arise, and evaluate how these mutations interact with existing genetic variation to drive malformations.
