EATRIS-Plus project funded by the European Commission

NeurATRIS is pleased to announce that the ‘EATRIS-Plus’ proposal has been funded by the European Commission under the INFRADEV-3 call, which concerns the development and long sustainability of new pan-European research infrastructures. 

NeurATRIS, as EATRIS French node, is one of 19 partners in the four-year project. The project aims to build capabilities and deliver innovative scientific tools to support the long-term sustainability of EATRIS as one of Europe’s key research infrastructures.

Title of proposal: EATRIS-Plus – Consolidating the capacities of EATRIS-ERIC for personalised medicine

Start date: 2020 (precise date to be confirmed)

Duration: 48 months

11.7 teslas: The World-Record Magnetic Field Generated by a Human MRI Magnet

The Iseult project magnet being installed at Neurospin (CEA Paris-Saclay) reached a nominal magnetic field of 11.7 teslas (T) on July 18, 2019. This is a world record for a whole-body magnetic resonance imager (MRI) magnet, the culmination of years of R&D and at the forefront of innovation in the field of superconducting magnets. Over the coming months, the equipment required for neuroimaging will be installed around the magnet and in its central tube to create a human MRI scanner capable of examining the brain more accurately than ever before, in the interest of fundamental research, cognitive sciences and diagnosing neurodegenerative diseases.

SAVE THE DATE: HOPE 2020, January 29-31, Paris

The second edition of the "pHysiopathology of Parkinson's DisEase" (HOPE) conference, co-organized by NeurATRIS, will be held from 29 to 31 January 2020 at ICM in Paris.

Following the success of the first edition and the very stimulating feedback from participants regarding the latest scientific advances and the integration of basic research into clinical research, we are pleased to invite you to take part in this second edition.

The topics will cover the epigenetic and genetic determinants of Parkinson's disease, their molecular mechanisms and their modelling, in order to better understand the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease and open pre-clinical, clinical and imaging perspectives.

In addition we propose a workshop the first day on two topics that will be discussed later on during the congress

1)      Cellular modelling using microfluidic and stem cell technologies

2)      Available imaging tools for cellular models and to humans

The definitive program and registrations will soon be available on the conference website: https://hope2020.sciencesconf.org/
