This research has more recently started at FPS and was identified also on the basis of the opportunity to establish a solid and rational connection with the activity of the Foundation “Dopo di Noi”, which is devoted to the assistance of patients affected by physical and/or psychic disability and will host FPS. FPS intends also to be instrumental to strengthen and extend the research directions previously funded by Fondazione Pisa in this research direction. This research line will be the subject of a special effort in 2017 to better focus FPS activities and identify core projects for the foundation.
