Postdoc in neural stem cell metabolism – Francis Crick Institute, London

Posted by on October 19th, 2020

  A four year postdoctoral position in the lab of Alex Gould is now available. Previous work in the laboratory, using Drosophila, has shown that the neural stem cell niche plays a critical role in sparing the developing CNS from stresses such as nutrient restriction and hypoxia (PMID: 26451484, PMID: 21816278). We are now looking[…]

Neurogenesis in “non-neurogenic” regions

Posted by on November 13th, 2014

In the early ‘90s, the discovery of neural stem cells in the adult brain aroused hope to exploit these cells to treat neurodegenerative diseases or even induce brain regeneration. Yet, the real potential of these cells is still unclear. In the last 15 years we have learned that during development neural stem cells are an[…]

Awards presented at this year’s BSCB-BSDB Spring meeting in Canterbury

Posted by on May 31st, 2011

Each year, three medals to honour extraordinary research achievements in cell and developmental biology are awarded at the joint conference of the British Societies for Cell Biology (BSCB) and Developmental Biology (BSDB). Here on the Node, Eva has recently posted an interview with Carlos Carmona-Fontaine, to whom this year’s Beddington medal was awarded, for his[…]

In Development this week (Vol. 138, Issue 8):

Posted by on March 22nd, 2011

Here are the research highlights from the current issue of Development: Fishing out adult neural stem cells Adult neural stem cells (NSCs) hold great potential for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases and nervous system injuries. To date, adult neurogenesis has been mainly studied in rodents but, on p. 1459, Laure Bally-Cuif and co-workers use GFP-encoding[…]
