1. Study of the genetic predisposition to epilepsy and to antieplieptic treatment response (pharmacogenetics).2.Investigations on the pathogenesis of
Friedreich ataxia and development of new cellular and animal models.3. Development of the induced pluripotent stem cell (iPS) technology for nervous system
