On November 11 (2019), Latvian Institute of Organic Synthesis (LIOS) started Horizon 2020 project “Networking for excellence in functional pharmacology to study the role of fatty acid metabolism in neurological disorders” (FAT4BRAIN).
The FAT4BRAIN project is a cooperation between LIOS and world-leading partners in translational neuropharmacology (Uppsala University, Sweden), metabolism and neuropsychiatric imaging research (Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen, Germany) as well as innovative mitochondria research (Oroboros Instruments, Austria).
During the project, partners are going to establish a network of excellence focused on the pivotal and common role of fatty acid metabolism in the development of neurological disorders, a topic of highest biomedical and societal concern.
The FAT4BRAIN kick-off meeting was held from November 7th to 8th in LIOS. The project coordinator is prof. Maija Dambrova (LIOS).
