Marina Romero-Ramos' lab has been awarded 600.000 DKK by The Novo Nordisk Foundation
Dr. Romero-Ramos' lab has been awarded 600.000 DKK by The Novo Nordisk Foundation under the Bioscience and Basic Biomedicine call from Autumn 2017. The grant will support the expenses related to a PhD project in the Romero-Ramos lab for the coming 2 years. This project aims to study the role of peripheral immune cells in the neurodegenerative process associated to Parkinson’s disease. The work is based in prior data obtained by the lab in rodent disease models as well as in patients with Parkinson. The experiments will constitute the central focus of Sara Almeida Ferreira’ PhD project, and will be developed in collaboration with Dr. Soeren Krag Moestrup.
