The main goal of NICO research center is to study the fundamental biological mechanisms of nervous system function, whose knowledge is essential for the development of innovative therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric disorders.
NICO is an interdepartmental institute of Turin University devoted to Neuroscience. We focus in developing a multidisciplinary approach that combines the skills and expertise of our faculty, with the goal of integrating basic research and its clinical applications.
The Conference, dedicated to Rita Levi-Montalcini, will present all the latest breakthroughs in treatment, translational R&D, early diagnosis, drug development and clinical trials in Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other related neurological disorders. Our researcher prof. Elena Tamagno will give a lecture on "Mechanism of Tau protein aggregation".
