“I joined ARM-Net Consortium to profit from the experience of my European colleagues who are fully committed with patients with ARM and therefore improve the care and quality of life of them. It is a great opportunity to join knowledge, stimulate research and push the quality of care forward for a better understanding and treatment of this wide spectrum of malformations. Spreading our knowledge is a must in order to reach every patient around the globe and improve his life.”
