Mid-term meeting and Network School 3

During the first week of May, all members of Syn2Psy met online with the REA Project Officer for two days of meetings and science!

During the three days that followed the meeting, the ESRs virtually join Lundbeck for Network School 3, under the theme “Drug discovery and development: from idea to product”.

SimpleSci – Episode 3

Welcome to episode 3 of our SimpleSci series! This time, Laura describes her work on the characterisation of the effect of loss of GLRA2 protein and how it can contribute to the development of neuropsychiatric disorders.

Check out Episodes 1 and 2 by Manuela Rizzi and Orsolya Antal here.

Syn2Psy is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the EU Horizon 2020 framework program under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) initiative. Its mission is to provide advanced (PhD-level) training to early-stage researchers in the molecular, synaptic, circuit and behaviour basis of neuropsychiatric disorders.
