The protein aggravating the Alzheimer's disease
In mice with Alzheimer's disease, overexpression of the protein ITPKB causes aggravation of the disease. Furthermore, its inhibition in neurons of mice in culture limits the production of amyloid peptides, responsible for the formation of senile plaques.

From birdsong to neurodegenerative diseases
In the very long term, the idea is that if we manage to create neurogenesis or promote greater neurogenesis in the human brain, we will be able to counter, and even cure neurodegenerative diseases, or manage to repair, at least partly, traumatic brain damage.

In search of biological and radiological markers of aneurysm instability
Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) are a common disorder affecting 4 % of the population over the age of 65. The risk of rupture is currently estimated according to diameter, but while some large aneurysms may remain intact, it isn’t rare for small aneurysms torupture. Teams at the CHU hospital and the GIGA are on the trail of markers that can predict the instability of abdominal aneurysms.
