LaSpes is a non-profit organization (ONLUS). It was founded in 2018 with the aim of supporting the research of primitive immunodeficiencies.
The WAS, (Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome), unfortunately belongs to the numerous group of rare diseases of primitive immunodeficiency.
In order to develop a specific treatment as soon as possible, it is fundamental in such cases to find an early diagnosis and identification of the gene that causes the disease.
LaSpes ONLUS, from Latin “hope”, is directed especially at young people. This is why, along our logo, we chose to include “young people for young researchers”.
Above all, young people will be the “machine” that will set up initiatives, brainstorm ideas and create fundraisers. This is why the recipients of scholarships will also be young and deserving students.
LaSpes will fund scholarships and research contracts for deserving young students, with particular attention to the specialized operational unit Tiget of San Raffaele di Milano.
In addition, LaSpes ONLUS will raise awareness on the issue of primitive immunodeficiencies, organize initiatives to raise funds and spread awareness on the objectives of our the organization.
The entire proceeds of the initiatives and donations will be allocated destinated to scholarships and future forms of support for research and patients, which LaSpes ONLUS will identify based on the indications of the Scientific Committee.
