With regards to this topic COSBI can provide a leading contribution to the goal of increasing life expectancy and reducing some of the common killers associated with child and maternal mortality and also in the future efforts needed to fully eradicate a wide range of diseases and emerging health issues to improve the quality of life at all ages. Thanks to our computational approach and to the high relevance of our projects in partnership with leading partners, COSBI aims at identifying and optimizing novel therapies for both rare diseases as Lysosomal Storage Disorders (LSDs) and common diseases as Diabetes, obesity and cancer, wide-spread infectious diseases as SARS-CoV-2 and the ones affecting developing countries as Tuberculosis, pediatric and age-related neurodegenerative diseases as Alzheimer, Parkinson, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), and for preventing problems during pregnancy as Neural Tube Defects (NTDs)
