New publication about the identification of novel targets for treatment of post-traumatic stress disorders

Kinase inhibitors are among the most common druggable targets in the pharma industry

Post-traumatic stress (PTSD) is a relatively recently recognized psychiatric condition afflicting thousands of people worldwide due to war conflicts, natural disasters and crime. Current treatments are of limited efficacy and novel therapies are urgently needed.

Researchers from ACHUCARRO part of new 11 million dollars consortium to tackle Parkinson's disease

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.

shinyCurves, a free shiny web application to analyze multisource qPCR amplification data

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.
