New neurotransmission regulators involved in the pathogenesis of neurological diseases

The ionotropic glutamate receptors play many roles in the physiological functioning of synapses, and their deregulation is associated with multiple neuropathological conditions. More and more there are evidences that the subclasses of these receptors (NMDA, AMPA or Kainat) are dynamic structures that move between the cytosol and the neuronal membrane, where they act as calcium channels. This has opened new avenues of research that aim to explain how and why these receptors reach the synaptic membrane or drop out.

COMBACTE-MAGNET, an European project to promote the development of antibiotics in Europe

34 European academic partners and 5 pharmaceutical companies are launching a new project, COMBACTE-MAGNET, under the IMI AMR research programme New Drugs 4 Bad Bugs (ND4BB). ND4BB has been launched to stimulate antibiotic development in Europe. COMBACTE-MAGNET (Combating Bacterial Resistance in Europe - Molecules against Gram-Negative Infections) will bring highly innovative studies and activities related to prevention and treatment of infections caused by multi-drug resistant Gram-negative bacteria (MDR-GNB).
