Laboratory mission

This is a translational and interdisciplinary laboratory focuses on neurodegenerative and psychiatric diseases with a mathematical approach multiperspectivista, chemical, medical, neurobiological, behavioral, national and international collaborations. We look for new therapies, new targets, new mechanisms for addressing central nervous system disease. Our goal is achieved we dare collaboration between academia, clinical and industry. Within our goal it is also the development of intellectual property and patents. The group has Dr. Deacon as Head of cognition and pharmacology.

He specialized in animal behavior and worked as a lecturer in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, where he worked about 30 years, specializing in behavioral tests for pharmacological studies using rodents as a model. The laboratory also has the advise of Dr. Thomas Haak, chemical specialist search pharmacological targets. And with Dr. Francisco Altimiras, for analyzing big data computing for our genetic analysis and search for biomarkers.
