Importance du microenvironnement dans les modèles cérébraux in vitro pour le criblage phénotypique

Presentation in english Environ 90 % des candidats médicaments échouent aux essais cliniques, notamment en neurologie, faute d’efficacité. Cela met en évidence un manque de pertinence dans les modèles précliniques, y compris les modèles in vitro, qui ne prennent pas en compte le microenvironnement, composé par les cellules gliales et Read more…

Importance of the microenvironment in cerebral in vitro models for phenotypic screening (Abstract of Veronique’s thesis)

About 90% of drug candidates fail in clinical trials, for efficacy- and toxicity-related reasons, which often involve the Central Nervous System (CNS). This high failure rate highlights a lack of relevance in experimental models used upstream, including human in vitro models. Indeed, they do not take into account the complexity Read more…

We will present our researches on the importance of ECM for drug discovery in Parkinson’s disease at NeuroFrance congress (May 19 to 21 )

The international NeuroFrance congress will take place May, 19, 20 and 21th 2021 (virtual meeting). On this occasion, our PhD student Véronique De Conto will present these works in a poster about the importance of matricial and cellular microenvironment for drug discovery in Parkinson’s disease (summary below).
