Thematic areas:
• Excitotoxicity
• Axon-initial segment &
axonal plasticity
• Neural Stem cells &
Neurospheres
• NF-kB and Growth-factor
signaling
We have: Live cell imaging LSM and High-content imaging
facilities and broad Neuro culture know how!
We seek:
•
Natural compounds/libraries
towards:
– AIS / Axon-protective
strategies
– Neuroprotective strategies
– Affect axon-specification
– Anti-inflammatory
– Preservation of Mitochondrial
respiration
– ‘Neuroenhancer’ potential
