Prof. Carlos Matute has been nominated as MC Member of the COST Programme action number CA21130 about «P2X receptors as a therapeutic opportunity» (PRESTO), the other representative of Spain, together with Dr. Pablo Pelegrín (Murcia).

P2X receptors (P2XRs) are ATP-gated ion channels involved in intercellular communication with an established role in neurodegeneration, infection, inflammation, cancer growth, and progression. In vitro and in vivo evidence, generated mainly by leading Europe-based laboratories, shows that P2XRs might be an ideal pharmacological target in these diseases and many others.
