Introduction to the microfluidic culture techniques Cortical neuronal cultures Federico Dajas-Bailador | Florencia Arredondo
This International Symposium and Workshop is an integral part of a novel Uruguay-UK research network with the aim to identify and characterize the role of nutraceuticals in age-related neurodegenerative disease. It has been funded by the Science and Innovation Open Call from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office through the UK Embassy in Montevideo in association with Agencia Nacional de Investigación en Innovación (ANII). The objective proposed is to implement a collaborative research network for the characterization of therapeutically relevant nutraceuticals through an innovative approach combining bioinformatics with cellular and molecular biology. The combined application of cutting-edge technical approaches, along with the transference of knowledge and expertise among each participant group, will contribute to the development of translational research in Uruguay. The activities proposed will increase our understanding of the neuroprotective mechanisms of nutraceuticals, while consolidating bilateral ties in academic and translational research between Uruguay and the UK.
