Interview with a scientist: proteomics, biomarkers and ALS.
No effective therapies are currently available for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis due to the lack of biomarkers for early diagnosis and monitoring disease progression. Meet here, Dr. Valentina Bonetto, and read about her research efforts based on proteomic assays to find validated biomarkers and innovative therapeutic strategies

4 things I missed during the Society for Neuroscience virtual conference…or did I?
The Society for Neuroscience, SfN, holds an annual meeting that is attended by scientists and physicians from all around the world. This year, because of the ongoing pandemic, the meeting was run virtually. Did I enjoy it?
Interview with a scientist: traffic jams at the nuclear pores
Within our body, hundreds of molecules pass in and out across the cellular membranes, and, similarly to cars, they can get stuck in traffic jams. Nuclear-cytoplasmic trafficking might contribute to neurological disorders. Read more.
Microglia: the brain’s immune barrier at the interface of good and bad
In this blog post, we share an overview of the existing knowledge regarding the neuro-modulatory function of microglia.
Neuroscience research highlights from SfN 2019
The Annual Society for Neuroscience (SfN) meeting features the latest discoveries in brain research, from the basic mechanisms, to translational and clinical studies. Here are some highlights from the conference.
Free webinar - The Brain Atlas: A road map through the complex protein signature of the brain
Attend our AAAS/Science-hosted webinar “The Brain Atlas: A road map through the complex protein signature of the brain” and learn more about the Brain Atlas, part of the Human Protein Atlas (HPA), from the scientists behind the project. Register today!
Interview with a scientist: Brain Atlas - past, present and future challenges
Why a brain atlas? The brain is arguably the most important and the most complex organ in the human body. There are more than 1,000 disorders of the brain and nervous system. The understanding of how to prevent and treat these disorders is crucial for maintaining the overall health and well-being of the human population.
Mapping the human brain - a guide to the Brain Atlas
The Brain Atlas is a tool that brings human brain mapping to a new level. It provides an overview of all the proteins expressed in the brains of three mammalian species: human, mouse, and pig. It also compares the proteins in the brain to the proteins in other tissue types of the human body. Excited? Read more.
Primary antibodies and clinical research: 3 case studies
Research antibodies have wide applicability and transferability and are enormously useful over a wide range of domains. Read more to discover how antibodies help progressing science.
