Early Stage Researchers
14 Early Stage Researchers have been recruited to the EuroNeuroTrophin network to be trained in the discovery of small molecule neurotrophin mimetics as candidate therapeutic agents for neurodegeneration and neuro-inflammation.
ESR11: Thanasis Rogdakis
Evaluation of microneurotrophins activity on neurotrophin receptors and their role in signalling, in in vitro and in vivo neurodegenerative conditions, such as Alzheimer’s Disease .
Host: Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas, Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology
ESR14: Marco Destro
Discovery of new neurotrophin mimics using high-through put screening in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patient-derived in vitro models, and taking forward hit compounds into in vivo models.
Host: University of Sheffield, Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN)
