Targeting Mitochondria in Human Fragile X Syndrome Neurons

FRAXA Research Foundation has awarded a $90,000 research grant to principal investigator Dr. Xinyu Zhao and postdoctoral fellow Dr. Minjie Shen at the University of Wisconsin. They are investigating whether drugs which boost mitochondria — which provide the energy for cells — could treat Fragile X syndrome. Dr. Zhao explains in this video. With this award, FRAXA has funded almost $1 Million in Fragile X research at the University of Wisconsin!
