From genome and epigenome to molecular medicine

Axis 4


Axis 4: Integrating Systems in Neuroscience

Leaders: Laurent Fagni and Christian Hamel


One of the most important challenge of this XXIst century will be the discovery of efficient therapies against neurological disorders. To this end, a reasonable strategy is to improve our understanding of sensory organs and brain functions and dysfunctions. We follow this strategy and focus on neurodegenerative diseases of genetic and epigenetic origin, with the objective to unravel the molecular and cellular substrates that are responsible for neuronal cell death. We use a multi-scale approach with genetic and cellular analyses, in animals and human. We will generate new transgenic animal models and bioactive molecules. Thus we believe that our work will contribute to the discovery of novel, customized and more efficient therapeutic treatments.
