Mar 2012 - Maltese Genes, Blood & You

Prof. Alex Felice gave an informal talk called 'Maltese Genes, Blood and You' about his life's work studying blood disorders common to Maltese people and the Mediterranean region. The findings of his team can help advance cures for people around the world.

His team are now studying the Maltese genome, which will uncover how various genetic diseases in Malta are caused. Finding out the cause might lead to a cure; studies aided by bio-banks (large stores of human tissue), which are now being developed in Malta as elsewhere.

This was a special event being held as the informal end of SLING diffusion.
