Abstract Diagnosis and treatment methods based on big genomic data are becoming widespread as the cost of genome sequencing decreases gradually. In this context, disease-gene association studies are of great importance. The genomic data is very sensitive when compared to other data types and contains information about the individual and his / her relatives. Many ...

DISTINGUISHED LECTURE IN BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING (sandwiches served) Abstract: Next generation drug-delivery vehicles aimed to carry biological drugs, such as proteins or nucleic acids, are often designed to mimic how natural biological nanoparticles, such as viruses and exosomes, transfer genetic information between cells in vivo. Due to the large heterogeneity of nanoparticles irrespective of whether they ... Read more about "Single nanoparticle analytics: from viruses via exosomes to drug carriers"

The vast majority of our knowledge on vibrio pathogenesis is based on the ancient and well-studied human pathogen, V. cholerae. Often neglected and relegated to specialized journals are vibrio infections in non-human species. While the studies of animal pathogens have benefited from the era of genomics, the search for pathogenesis determinants is often biased by ...

Crystal Structure Prediction (CSP) methods were developed on the assumption that an organic molecule would crystallize in its most stable crystal structure. Even implementing this approach is a challenge to computational chemistry methods,[1] as shown by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre’s blind tests.[2] Polymorphism adds additional challenges, as this is usually a kinetic phenomenon with ...

In my presentation, I will present new approaches to characterize the dynamics and diversity of mitochondria in the nervous system. While many functions have been ascribed to neural mitochondria, how these functions are executed in the in vivo context of vastly extended neuronal geometries remains unresolved. My lab uses in vivo imaging approaches, as well ... Read more about "BMI Seminar // Mitochondrial dynamics and diversity in the mouse nervous system"

Apathy is a common and debilitating negative symptom of schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric disorders. While originally defined as an impairment of motivation, apathy has recently been defined as a quantitative reduction of goal-directed behavior. Treatment options for apathy remain very limited, in particular for patients with schizophrenia. In this talk I will present a research ...

It has long been suggested that failure appropriately to inhibit impulses stems from a deficit in prefrontal cortical inhibitory function. Here it will be suggested that impulsivity, which predicts the vulnerability to develop addiction to stimulant drugs as well as compulsive behaviours as observed in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and early onset Parkinson’s Disease, also stems ...
