FORTH’s Researchers a step closer to unraveling the secrets of the brain function - Featured in Nature Communications Editors' Highlights
In a recent publication, featured in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Communications Editors' highlights, the team of Dr. Panayiota Poirazi, Research Director at ΙΜΒΒ, presents a new software framework that allows the incorporation of dendrites and their key mechanisms into large-scale neural network models.
IMBB scientists uncovered a novel cellular mechanism that regulates ageing and fertility
Research at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of FORTH published in the premier international scientific journal Nature Aging, reveals a fundamental quality control mechanism that operates in cells to safeguard the integrity and function of the nucleus. By maintaining nuclear homeostasis, this molecular mechanism contributes critically to promote longevity and fertility. IMBB researchers Dr. Margarita-Elena Papandreou and Dr. Georgios Konstantinidis, headed by Dr. Nektarios Tavernarakis (Professor at the Medical School, University of Crete, and Chairman of the Board at FORTH), discovered that recycling of nuclear and nucleolar components via autophagy delays ageing of somatic cells, and sustains the immortality of germ cells, which are required for reproduction.
