Call for Proposals for Research Projects on "Synaptic Dysfunction in Disorders of the Central Nervous System"
Defective synaptic communication is at the origin of numerous neurological and mental disorders - synaptopathies - such as epilepsies, migraine, autism spectrum disorders, schizophrenia, mood disorders and others. These disorders constitute an important societal challenge and often impose a heavy burden on patients, their families, and carers. To address this topic, the 'Network of European Funding for Neuroscience Research' (NEURON) aims to coordinate research efforts and funding programmes across Europe and beyond to promote disease-related biomedical research that will improve our understanding of synaptic dysfunction. NEURON particularly wishes to encourage multidisciplinary approaches and translational research proposals combining basic and clinical research that will ultimately help to develop new strategies for prevention, diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation. With this aim, 20 funding organisations from 17 countries launched a Joint Transnational Call for Research Proposals on ‘Synaptic Dysfunction in Disorders of the Central Nervous System’.
