All NeMO Centers are active in the field of clinical research, conducting numerous studies, most of which are networked with other NeMO Centers and / or with the national and international clinical community: to make this network activity more efficient, at the Clinical Centers of Milan and Rome, there are clinical units dedicated to research, that support the management and coordination of clinical trials in which the two centers are involved.
Alongside clinical research there’s NEMOLAB, a technological hub dedicated to projects that aim to find solutions to improve the autonomy of children and adults with neuromuscular disease.
The NINeR was inaugurated on September 25, 2019 in Rome by NeMO Clinical Center and the Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli IRCCS Foundation. It is an institute for clinical research in the pediatric field on neuromuscular diseases, in particular on Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) and Muscular Dystrophies, it was created to enhance the clinical-scientific know-how developed to date, with the aim of allowing children to access new care treatments as quickly as possible.
The NINeR includes a Clinical Trial Unit: an area of 150 square meters where children, together with families, can access experimental treatments. The unit includes a multi-specialist team prepared for the activation and dissemination of research protocols and procedures that meet the best international standards for conducting clinical trials.
The scientific director of NiNeR is Prof. Eugenio Mercuri.
