Dr Alexandru Christian Ciobanu, researcher at the Unit for research in neurobiology of anxiety and fear, received a Travel Grant from the Physiological society to take part on July 2-6, 2016 in the 10th Forum of Neurosciences (FENS) of Copenhagen.
Robert Lütjens, founder of the BioLemantis project, have been awarded one InnoTREK grant for the proof of concept for a new biosensor technology to diagnose autism spectrum disorders he developped during his period in the laboratory of Professor Ron Stoop, Centre for Psychiatric Neurosciences.
The Center for Psychiatric Neuroscience belongs to the Department of Psychiatry, and is located within the Psychiatric Hospital Complex of Cery in Prilly (Lausanne).
Research activities at the CPN are focused on several psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, drug addiction, anxiety and Alzheimer's disease. They are aimed at basic neurobiological, neurochemical or cognitive processes with a view to developing early diagnosis as well as pharmacological and behavioral therapies. Furthermore, they are based on a translational approach, which promotes the analysis of neurobiological mechanisms and their vulnerability to the environment in the development of psychiatric disorders. Research activities are also focused on the genetically-based interindividual variability in the response to pharmacological treatments, with the aim to offer an individualized drug treatment.
The CNP also offers teachings and some other activities such as :
The Journal Club is weekly organized, during which an article is presented by one member on a recent topic in neuroscience. A pdf version of the article is sent several days before to all participants of the Journal Club. A Journal Club session lasts in general 1 hour, and takes place on Tuesdays at 9am in the Salle Escale which can be found at the end of the corridor on the first floor of the CNP, immediately behind the separating door.
