  • 74th ICREA Colloquium - Autoimmunity meets neurodegeneration: different pathways for similar brain dysfunctions

     

    Speakers: Prof. Miquel Vila (VHIR) and Prof. Josep Dalmau (IDIBAPS)

    When: 31st January 2017, 18:00h

    Where: ICREA, Pg. Lluís Companys 23, 6th floor

     Abstract:

     Studies during the last 10 years have revealed a new category of brain diseases in which crucial neuronal receptors are attacked by autoantibodies. As a result of this attack there is a reduction of the target synaptic proteins leading to alterations in synaptic transmission. The clinical manifestations vary according to the receptor involved, and may resemble many of the symptoms caused by neurodegenerative diseases in which specific receptors are involved, including among others Parkinson, epilepsy, chronically progressive sleep disease, or schizophrenia.  

    The ICREA colloquia are a great way to learn about remote fields of research from our best experts. We usually have two speakers, who offer their opinions on the same subject from very different angles. Open to all ICREAs and their guests. There’s wine and munchies at the end, please book in advance!

  • ICREA-FIJC Conference "Across Tumour Heterogeneity and Evolution in Cancer: From in Silico Studies to Clinical Impact"

     

    ICREA Conference Awards are specific, dedicated awards aimed at funding scientific events of the hottest, most advanced topics in research of all disciplines. ICREA Research Professors make their proposals for funding and a board of external advisors ranks them and grants the awards.

    The 2016 edition of the ICA has gone to http://www.icreafijcconference.com/ after fierce competition and a lot of debate of the jury. The conference will be held on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th of March 2017.
