1. can you introduce yourself?
I am Patricia Lanssiers and I work at the King Baudouin Foundation.
2. Why do you support the project 101 genomes Marfan of the Fondation 101 Génomes ?
The King Baudouin Foundation is a public utility foundation serving the public interest that works in different poles such as a poverty cluster, social justice, a talent development or democracy pole.
The health cluster is one of our major hubs within the King Baudouin Foundation and in this health cluster, rare diseases are really very important. We work on several axes: we are working on an axis where we have a great price for research in rare diseases which is the Generet prize but we also have a large number of funds that have missions specifically dedicated to rare diseases and the F101G fai t part of these funds within the King Baudouin Foundation.
The aim of the F101G is to advance research into rare diseases, particularly Marfan syndrome. The objective of the F101G is therefore entirely in line with the objectives and missions of the King Baudouin Foundation.
In addition, I have a great deal of respect for the work of Ludivine and Romain. They have surrounded themselves with high-level scientists to advance research into this disease and more generally rare disease research.
