Immuno- and Neuropharmacology


Time: Monday 1st, 14:30 to 16:30.

Chair(s): Linette Willemsen & Rahul Pandit

Organizing FIGON partner(s): Dutch Pharmacological Society (NVF) & Rudolf Magnus Institute of Neuroscience

Deciphering the pathogenesis of neuropsychiatric diseases remains a challenging task till date. The complex interaction of genetic and environmental factors with the immune system is considered to be crucial for the development of such disorders. The session opens with an update on the role of the immune system in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease. Subsequent presentations will shed light on the pathophysiology of degenerative brain disorders and how this knowledge could be used for drug targeting. The session also discusses how dietary components modulating the innate immune system could be useful for treating neuropsychiatric disorders.
