Astrocytes play a key role in the survival of neurons

Researchers from IDIBAPS have participated in a study led by the Institute of Neurosciences of the University of Barcelona (UBNeuro) in which a potential therapeutic strategy to treat Alzheimer’s has been identified. The study, published in Journal of Neuroscience, shows in a model of the illness in mice, that astrocytes –a type of cells in the brain- are able to release proteins that favour survival of neurons. According to the researchers, these results are a step forward in the understanding of the physiology of astrocytes, and they bring the chance to use this type of cells in therapeutic ways to treat Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers from IDIBAPS and CRG, awarded with an ERC Synergy grant to unravel chronic lymphocytic leukemia

The European Research Council (ERC) today announced the results of the 2018 Synergy Grants call for proposals. The aim of Synergy Grants is to address ambitious research questions that can only be answered by the coordinated work of a small group of two to four principal investigators and their teams, bringing together their complementary skills, knowledge and resources. The ultimate goal of the scheme is to give support to a close collaborative interaction that will enable transformative research at the forefront of science, capable of yielding groundbreaking or even unpredictable scientific results and/or cross-fertilizing disciplines.
