LiCEND Summer School 2019: Experimental Models for Neurodegenerative Disease: From Cells to Model Organisms
The objectives of the LiCEND Summer School are to present a large selection of experimental models and technological applications dedicated to the investigation of neurodegenerative diseases.
The LiCEND Summer School 2019 is based on the expertise of the Lille neuroscientists’ teams as well as highly-skilled international and French specialists. Gathering of such experts allows to propose an attractive and innovative training to the (future) researchers on neurodenegerative diseases.
Objectives: to present a large selection of experimental models and technological applications dedicated to the investigation of neurodegenerative diseases.
Currently, different experimental models are used to study the neurodegenerative mechanisms and associated processes, such as normal ageing, and to investigate a large variety of parameters: genetic and environmental factors, impact of metabolism, interaction with the immune system, cellular and molecular mechanisms, molecular screening, evaluation of therapeutic strategies… It is crucial to keep this in mind and to choose accordingly for each research project, which model(s) would be the most appropriate to fulfill the needs but also to know their limits (scientific relevancy, available tools and technologies, costs…).
The LiCEND Summer School 2019 “Experimental approaches to study neurodegenerative disorders in biology: from the cell dish to the model organisms” aims to provide students and professionals, a global view of experimental models of neurodegeneration with their respective “pro” and “cons” aspects.
Each session will be organized around one type of experimental models with 2 to 4 talks given by recognized specialists. The 3R rules have been considered while building those sessions, presenting alternative models to replace animals or allowing researcher to refine their experimentation by choosing the most efficient models to explore neurodegenerative diseases.
