Neurodevelopmental Programming and Phenotypic Plasticity: Implications for Stress, Aging and Health

PENS – PARTIALLY SUPPORTED SCHOOL, September 06 - 13, 2009
Rhodes, Greece

Application Deadline: 2009-05-01

Aims and Scope
The goal of the school is to train advanced PhD students and post-doctoral fellows in
concepts of neurodevelopmental programming of the stress regulating systems during health and disease over the lifespan. The participants will be guided through the stress system from various levels of biological organisation ranging from genes, neurons and circuits to physiological regulation and behaviour. We aim to bridge research on development with research on ageing, and to integrate these two disciplines via a common link, the neuroendocrine stress system. To this end we use a translational approach from an evolutionary perspective to novel therapeutic strategies to treat stress- and age-related brain disorders.

Further support for the school is from the EU Lifespan consortium (http://www.lifespannetwork.nl), the ESF Euro-stress program and the Royal Nether-lands Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Topics
Topics include: developmental models, epigenetics, gene regulation, gene variants, nuclear receptors, stress hormones, growth factors, brain, neuroplasticity, behaviour, PTSD, depression, aging, lifespan.
