Neurociencia: Eje cerebro-intestino podría ser la clave para determinar origen de la enfermedad de Parkinson

De forma insospechada, en los últimos años diversas investigaciones científicas indican que el intestino tendría un rol fundamental en la muerte de estas neuronas. En este sentido, alteraciones en la población bacteriana que normalmente coloniza nuestro intestino sería una condición favorable para inducir el inicio de la enfermedad.

Chilena descubre función de proteína clave en comprensión del cáncer

Proyecto de investigación doctoral, que será destacado por la revista Nature Communications en próximos días, activó una colaboración entre laboratorios de seis países que permitió generar este hallazgo. Estudio describió cómo la proteína IRE1α es capaz de regular la reparación del daño en el ADN, una de las principales causas de la progresión y desarrollo de esta patología. Los resultados pueden ser una puerta de entrada a nuevos blancos terapéuticos contra la enfermedad, destaca Claudio Hetz, director del Instituto de Neurociencia Biomédica.

EMBO funding opportunities for life scientists in Chile

About EMBO
EMBO is an organisation of more than 1800 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences in Europe and beyond. The major goals of the organisation are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.

 
EMBO Global Activities
EMBO recognises the importance of interactions within the worldwide scientific community. EMBO Global Activities promote the engagement with researchers in countries or territories covered by formal cooperation agreements. These agreements give life scientists access to EMBO Programmes and thereby catalyse scientific collaboration that connects researchers from the cooperation partners with the research community in Europe.Cooperation agreement with ANID, Chile
The Agencia Nacional de Investigación y Desarrollo (ANID), EMBO and the European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC) signed a co-operation agreement in 2018 to strengthen scientific interaction and collaborative research between Chile and Europe.
 
As part of this agreement, the following EMBO activities are open to scientists based in Chile*:

  • EMBO Fellowships: Applications are invited for Short-Term, Core Facility and Postdoctoral Fellowships – applications open all year round
  • Support for Global Lecture Series by EMBO Members or EMBO Young Investigators at research institutions in Chile – applications open all year round
*All applications should be addressed directly to EMBO, except when applying for travel stipends and fee waivers. These should be addressed to the organisers of the event.

Primera evidencia directa de que el cerebro replica nuestras experiencias mientras dormimos

Cuando nos quedamos dormidos, nuestros cerebros no están simplemente desconectados, están ocupados organizando nuevos recuerdos, y ahora, los científicos han vislumbrado el proceso. Los investigadores informan en la revista Cell Reports el 5 de mayo la primera evidencia directa de que los cerebros humanos reproducen experiencias de vigilia mientras duermen, visto en dos participantes con conjuntos de microelectrodos intracorticales colocados en sus cerebros como parte de un ensayo clínico piloto de interfaz cerebro-computadora.
