Bordeaux Purine Symposium

Monday 22 April / 14:15 - 17:45

Venue : Centre Broca Nouvelle-Aquitaine

Symposium organized by Eric Boué-Grabot and Jérôme Baufreton


This symposium will gather recognized french and brazilian experts, who will present advances made in understanding the role of neuronal and glial purinergic receptors (P2X, P2Y and Adenosine receptors) in synaptic maturation or plasticity, neurodegenerative diseases and neuro-inflammatory disorders from single molecule and new opto-gated tools, to functional and behavioral neuroscience.
