Associate Professor and DANDRITE Affiliated Researcher Felicity Mae Davis is the third recipient of the Biomedicine Diversity Award. She believes that we are not even close to reaching the goal on equity, diversity and inclusion in academia.
The Lundbeck Foundation Investigator Network (LFIN) is a new initiative designed to strengthen Danish neuroscience by connecting people and disciplines. DANDRITE Team Leader Gilles Vanwalleghem is one of 38 young investigators selected for the network.
The Review article is called 'GLP-1-Receptor Agonists in Neurodegeneration: Neurovascular Unit in the Spotlight' and is now published in the special issue of journal Cells on Parkinson disease. Together with lead author DANDRITE affiliate Giulia Monti, the authors share perspectives on the potential therapeutic value of the anti-diabetic GLP-1 receptor agonists in neurodegenerative diseases, and propose novel experimental paradigms to address unresolved issues in the field. Other contributors include Diana Gomes Moreira, Metter Richner and Rick Mustaers.
As of 1 July, Kristyna will start as PhD Student in Anders Nykjær's Group. Kristyna will be working on a project addressing the role of SorCS1 receptor in neuronal excitability, learning and memory using a novel mouse model of a conditional knockout of Sorcs1 gene restricted to granule cells of the dentate gyrus. She will use various behaviour techniques to characterize the model, in vitro calcium imaging, and a miniscope GRIN lens system.
The newly discovered structure of the autoinhibited ATP8B1 in complex with CDC50A proposes that a strategy of designing molecules that either stimulate the release of or mimic the autoinhibitory C-terminal region could be the first step in developing novel drugs against bile disorders.
