Grégory Barrière (INCIA) and Jerome Badaut (INCIA) coordinators...

of recently funded Era-Net Neuron international consortium: TRAINS.

Le 30 novembre 2016

 Gregory Barriere (INCIA Team: Coordinations and Plasticities of Spinal Generators) and Jerome Badaut INCIA (Group Leader Brain Molecular Imaging) are coordinators in 1.2 million Euros grant awarded to a consortium project TRAINS (Time dependent Remote Alterations after Injury to the Nervous System).

Injury to the brain and/or the spinal cord results in long-term functional the sensory and motor deficits in patients. Traditionally it was believed that these impairments are solely caused by the initial local brain/spinal cord damage. However, an increasing body of evidence now indicates that in addition to the acute local changes also distant areas of the central nervous system connected to the primarily injured area are also critically involved in this process. The six teams will join their effort in an integrative approach to unravel the mechanisms resulting in the remote changes after CNS injury, and to explore novel therapeutic strategies aimed to prevent longterm functional deficits following traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries.

TRAINS consortium is composed of internationally recognized experts in the field of brain and spinal cord injury. They will be using newly developed in vivo and ex vivo CNS imaging technologies together with state-of-the-art treatment and drug development approaches to tackle this clinically relevant question.

The consortium is composed by 6 teams from 5 countries:
Drs Barrière and Badaut from Bordeaux (INCIA, France)

Pr. Selmaj from Lodz (Poland)
Drs Dambrova & Zvejniece from (Latvia).
Dr Plesnila from Munich (Germany)
Dr Schwartz from Rehovot (Israel)
Dr Gressens from Paris (France)
