Two new awards are going to significantly support our dyslexia genetic projects. We are very grateful to The Waterloo Foundation for awarding our proposal in collaboration with Prof. Joel Talcott to support our dyslexia cohort at Aston University. This will be a large cohort will be carefully characterised at phenotypic level. A subset of individuals will undergo functional neuroimaging using state of the art facilities at the Aston Brain Centre. Of course, we will also collect biological material for genetic analysis.

In addition Silvia has been awarded a Visiting Professor position at the University of Cagliari to coordinate the early phases of establishing a Sardinian cohort for genetic dyslexia screening.
