SimpleSci – Episode 4
Welcome to episode 4 of our SimpleSci series! This time, Elisa explains how her work contributes to better understand the role of synaptic dysfunctions in neuropsychiatric disorders.
Check out Episodes 1, 2 and 3 by Manuela Rizzi and Orsolya Antal and Laura Upton 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.
THE EARLY STAGE RESEARCHERS
The mission of Syn2Psy is to train 14 young researchers with novel and innovative tools aimed at a comprehensive biological understanding of conditions such as AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER, SCHIZOPHRENIA, DEPRESSION and other NEUROPSYCHIATRIC DISORDERS.
The network integrates experienced researchers from top-level European research institutions (academic and industrial), as well as several key partner organizations:
