Journal Club on circuit neuroscience

Joint journal club for all groups at DANDRITE, and external participants.
The aim of the meetings is to have an open scientific exchange on new (and old) papers (and techniques, data etc) on selected neuroscience topics. The meetings will be informal, informative and exciting, and open to anyone! Please see the calendar for more information about dates and presenters – you are more than welcome to sign up.
Time and place: Every second Friday from 9-10 am in room 1185-132.

Responsible: Poul Henning Jensen and Marina Romero-Ramos

Neurodegenerative Journal club hosted by the Romero-Ramos and the Jensen labs.  

The area of interest include papers describing clinical observations, disease models, and mechanistic investigations related to neurodegenerative diseases, in general, and more in particular those associated to protein aggregation. The main focus has been on the neurodegenerative process in Parkinson’s disease, Lewy body dementia, multiple systems atrophy and the protein alpha-synuclein. But we have slowly shifted to also reading articles  about neuro-inflammation, the immune system, gut-brain axis and related topics that attract increasing attention in the research field. Our JC will also include, when relevant, novel technical approaches applied in the field.

All are welcome to join the journal club that often have visitors from the department of clinical medicine,  AUH.

Time and place: Every third week on a Friday at 1 pm in room 1185-132 or 1115-151B. 

Contact persons are phd students Sara Ferreira (sara.ferreira@biomed.au.dk) and Hjalte Gram (hjalteg@biomed.au.dk)

Responsible: Anders Nykjær
