A substantial donation made by Ferrari of 320.000 euros will aid in the development of activities ongoing at the Woman and Infant’s Research Laboratory at the University Hospital in Modena. The presentation of the laboratory, located on the 7th floor of the hospital, and recently restructured, was presented yesterday to Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo, regional Health councilor Giovanni Bissoni, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia Aldo Tomasi, Mayor Pighi, President of the Province Sabattini, and the heads of the hospital.

The laboratory, which was instituted in the Department of Woman and Infant’s, which is already present in the fields of obstetrics, neonatology, pediatric surgery, and genetics, thanks to this financing, will now be able to develop fetal and amniotic fluid stem cell research, which can be used to cure rare diseases that occur during development and infant neoplasms, with specific attention to fields that currently have little or no funding. The innovative sector of cellular therapies already present in Modena in collaboration with the Department of Oncology, Hematology, and Respiratory Pathologies directed by Professor Giuseppe Torelli, will also be further expanded and consolidated.
