Yvon Berland and Alexandre Tokay, respectively President of AMU and CEO of Vect-Horus signed a Public-Private Partnership allowing Vect-Horus to settle its research activities in the La Timone Medical Faculty

Vect-Horus has established a long-term highly efficient collaboration with the Institute of NeuroPhysiopathology INP (UMR7051 CNRS-AMU) directed by Dr. Michel KHRESTCHATISKY, cofounder of the company, and this Partnership signed on November 14, 2018 is a cornerstone in the creation of the LABCOM (Common Research Lab) between the INP and Vect-Horus.

New article from the NeuroCyto Team: Slow axonal transport of actin via hotspots and trails

The latest work of the NeuroCyto Team (previously on bioRxiv) is now published in the Journal of Cell Biology. We collaborated with the Roy lab to reveal a new mechanism of slow axonal transport, based on the previous discovery of actin hotspots and trails. Hotspots are static actin clusters that appear and disappear within minutes every 3-4 µm along the axon.

Ludovic Leloup (team cytoskeleton & neurophysiopathology) received a 30 000 € grant from the GEFLUC

The Emergence project entitled “Tau, from Alzheimer disease to glioblastoma, evolution of a prognostic marker” was selected by the Canceropole PACA to be founded by the GEFLUC (groupement des entreprises françaises dans la lutte contre le cancer). Team 9 has a long-time expertise on Tau and this grant will be used to complete the identification of the kinases responsible for Tau phosphorylation in glioblastoma.

NeuroSchool: a School of Neuroscience for and by AMU students

On September 12, over 300 students, teachers, researchers, clinicians and entrepreneurs participated in the launch of NeuroSchool, the school that unifies and harmonizes the teachings of the third year of the bachelor's degree (Neuroscience path), the master's degree and the PhD program in neuroscience. Funded by the National Research Agency and the A*Midex Foundation, NeuroSchool will benefit from a funding of approximately 10 million euros (over 10 years).
