The Gut-Brain axis in the etiology of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases

Mitochondrial signaling of neuronal innate immunity

ASYN as a bacteriostatic protein.

Overview

We live in a world where several environmental factors that favor the development of chronic neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric disorders are accruing. A cutting-edge area of research involves the gut-brain axis (GAin), in which the bidirectional communication between the enteric and central nervous systems via the vagus nerve also extends to endocrine, humoral, metabolic and immune pathways. Recent research indicates that a key regulator of this axis is the gut microbiota, in particular its composition and metabolites. The main objectives of the GAin group are: a) to validate a new paradigm for the etiology of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases at the interface gut-brain; b) to study how dysfunctional mitochondria leads to deregulated immune responses and what is the impact on the central nervous system, taking into account their microbial origin and the echoes of eventual confrontations between their evolutionary ancestors; c) to elucidate the role of proteins such as ASYN that are hallmarks of neurodegenerative disorders. To achieve our goals, models such as cell lines and mice, as well as different techniques (FACS, IHC, behavior and others) are used to understand and characterize the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie brain changes and to provide scientific bases for future studies in humans. Our group integrates researchers with complementary backgrounds, such as neurobiologists, biochemists, pharmacists and neurologists, allowing a more in-depth integrated perspective of the scientific questions. We are also committed to the education of young highly motivated students, mostly at the PhD level.
