We have recently published the article ‘Synapse Proteomes and Disease: The MASC Paradigm‘ as part of the book ‘Neuronal and Synaptic Dysfunction in Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disability’ (Academic Press, 2016).
The first meeting of the SynCogDis research network, coordinated by our group, will take place in Copenhagen the 3rd and 4th of July in the context of the FENS (Federation of European Neuroscience Society) meeting.
Hannah Monyer, from Heidelberg University (Germany), will close the first season of the ‘Neuronal Signaling and Synapses’ seminar series (2015-16).
Prof. Monyer will give her lecture on the 1st of March at 16.00 hours at the Aula Magna of the UB Medicine Faculty.
The new website for the ‘Synaptic role in cognitive disabilities’ network was launched on November 2015.
Together with four other groups from our research institute we have been awarded a large collaborative grant to investigate how cancer stem cells scape chemotherapy treatment. This project will also work towards the development of new tools to efficiently eliminate these cells. The Spanish national institute for health research (Instituto Carlos III) has awarded this project, which is led by Dr. R. Mangues.
On March 25th the Seminar Series entitled ‘Neuronal Signaling and Synapses’ will start.
This series ambitions to become a forum of discussion on the latest research performed on the molecular biology of synaptic function.
We will invite speakers from Catalonia, but also from the rest of Spain and Europe.
The complete calendar for 2015 can be viewed here.
On the 28th of December our last publication hits the top one on the list of Most Viewed Molecular Brain papers.
Human post-mortem synapse proteome integrity screening for proteomic studies of postsynaptic complexes.
