Three ZNZ researchers have launched a new seminar series to share recent developments in neuroimmunology and to encourage networking among junior researchers working in the field. Scientists can vote for the speaker to be invited. Who would you like to invite?
The nervous system and the immune system are inextricably interlaced, mutually influencing each other in health and disease. To keep ahead of recent developments in this highly dynamic field and encourage networking with colleagues working on similar topics, Giorgio Bergamini, Maria Teresa Ferretti and Rosa Paolicelli have recently launched ANIS (Advances in Neuroimmunology Schlieren), a new seminar series supported by the UZH Graduate Campus.
ANIS topics will range from microglia homeostatic functions, via immunological contribution to neuropsychiatric disorders, to new immune-based pharmacological approaches for the treatment of neurodegeneration.
Every month, an internationally renowned speaker will:
- meet young researchers and discuss their data & ideas over a coffee
(Invite the SpeakerTM – kindly sponsored by Momento Cafè)
- present the latest advances in neuroimmunology
- interact with all the ANISers, during the after-talk apero
UZH scientists can vote for the speaker they would like to have in Zurich by filling out the form here
The first two speakers were:
- 23rd February, Dr. Thierry Amedee, Bordeaux University, France
“PGE2-EP3 signaling pathway is responsible for hippocampal synaptic deficits in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease”
- 23rd March, Dr. Amanda Sierra, Basque Center for Neuroscience, Spain
“Clearing the corpses: Are microglia eating enough in the diseased brain?”
