Pubblicazione Bando JPND (EU Joint Programme – Neurodegenerative Disease Research)


L’iniziativa JPND, la più ampia iniziativa di ricerca a livello globale finalizzata ad affrontare la sfida delle malattie neurodegenerative, ha pubblicato lo scorso 9 gennaio, il nuovo bando “Multinational research projects for pathway analysis across neurodegenerative diseases”.

Le malattie neurodegenerative oggetto del bando includono:

  • Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
  • Parkinson’s disease and PD‐related disorders
  • Prion diseases
  • Motor neuron diseases
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA)
  • Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)

 

Le tematiche oggetto della proposta dovrebbero includere (ma non sono limitate) alle seguenti attività:

  • Examining pathological processes related to neurodegeneration, e.g. by using computational and systems-biology approaches.
  • Defining key regulatory steps affecting the onset or the progression of different diseases
  • Understanding the commonalities and the variability in neurodegenerative and other chronic diseases, using cutting-edge technologies.
  • Identifying common disease pathways and mechanisms.
  • Modelling of multi-level network dysfunction and generating new hypotheses for biological testing.
  • Discovering modulators in order to ultimately determine protective and resilience factors.
  • Identifying new drugs, drug targets or new uses of existing drugs in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Re-defining clinical phenotypes related to neurodegenerative diseases
