Jan Tønnesen and Federico Soria join an international consortium, headed by Professor Miquel Vila (Autonomous University of Barcelona), in a research project awarded 10 million dollars from the Aligning Science Across Parkinson's (ASAP) initiative
Parkinson's disease is a degenerative neurological disorder that primarily affects the brain's motor system and is symptomatically characterized by tremor, rigidity, and slowing of movements. It is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer's disease. The underlying cause is unknown, though both inherited genetic and environmental risk factors have been identified.
Fruit of the altruistic work of an interdisciplinary group of researchers from ACHUCARRO and the department of Genetics of the UPV/EHU during the pandemic
An interdisciplinary group of researchers, among them our colleague José Ramón Pineda Martí from ACHUCARRO, led by José Ramón Bilbao and Nora Fernandez-Jimenez from the department of Genetics of the UPV/EHU developed an altruistic work during the pandemic to help in the analysis of PCR data. The result is ShinyCurves, an on-line automated web application to analyze multisource qPCR amplification data from multi-plate and multi-platform formats.
Human iPSC-derived astrocytes transplanted into the mouse brain undergo morphological changes in response to amyloid-β plaques
A research team at ACHUCARRO, together with scientists at VIB-KU Leuven (Belgium) and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (US), collaborate in this work published in Molecular Neurodegeneration
A new method developed by a group of scientists led by Ikerbasque researcher Amaia Arranz pioneers the transplantation of human astrocytes into mice brains. To study the effects of Alzheimer's disease in a more natural environment, these scientists transplanted human astrocytes into mouse brains containing amyloid plaques, one of the main hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease.
A new project of the Arranz Lab awarded by the Alzheimer's Association
The Alzheimer's Association (ALZ.ORG) leads the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support.The Alzheimer's Association Research Grant (AARG) award aims to fund early-career investigators who are less than 15 years past their doctoral degree or post-residency (M.D. or D.O.).
The collaboration framework will allow partnerships in neuron-glia research, training and innovation
Achucarro Basque Center for Neuroscience (ACHUCARRO) and the Cajal Institute (CSIC - Spanish Council for Scientific Research) subscribed a collaboration agreement to create an "Associated Unit" to jointly advance in the knowledge about neuron - glia interactions in health and disease.
