The European Pharma industry is a major contributor to EU well-being, both in public health and economic (sales >200 billion €/year) terms. To maintain global leadership, it must respond to challenges from low-cost producers e.g. China by bringing new drug molecules to market in a streamlined, cost-effective manner. This strategy is underscored by recent initiatives of European regulators to exped ...

European Prevention of Alzheimer’s Dementia Consortium (EPAD)

Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Dec 31, 2019,

Background:The secondary prevention of Alzheimer’s dementia (AD) is achievable if we can identify individuals at risk of disease progression defined by biomarker evidence of AD pathology and no or only minimal clinical symptoms and engage them in a standing adaptive clinical trial, of the highest quality, testing multiple interventions. To achieve this, EPAD will also provide the analytical infras ...

The human visual brain can learn and adapt to change, which solves many of the problems posed by an ever-changing visual environment. However, to maintain a consistent overall representation of the visual world, the brain also has to retain previously acquired neuronal mechanisms. The key is to strike a balance between plasticity and stability.Increasing our knowledge about the stability and plast ...

Despite dramatic advances in molecular and imaging technologies and nearly 1 5,000 articles on schizophrenia and depression (S&D) there are few novel treatments. We think this is because of three major “bottle-necks”: a lack of etiologically-driven or pathophysiologically-accurate animal models; a lack of tests that provide indication of efficacy in healthy volunteers; and the reliance of clinical ...
