Y seguimos publicando más resultados.
Comenzamos a publicar los primeros resultados y los podéis consultar en distintos medios de comunicación. Aquí os dejamos un enlace a la noticia publicada en la Vanguardia:
En el marco de la evaluación de la cultura científica en la ESO – proyecto concedido por la FECYT a nuestro grupo de investigación- se ha finalizado la recogida de datos en los centros educativos. Estamos intrigados por conocer los resultados
Nuestro equipo va a comenzar un nuevo proyecto titulado “Evaluación de la cultura científica” financiado por el Ministerio de Ciencia Innovación y Universidades y por el FECYT (Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología.

We congratulate Víctor Echeverry-Alzate and Isabel Suela-Sanchez who this month successfully defended their PhD thesis.
First, Víctor Echeverry-Alzate presented his PhD thesis entitled “Pharmacological treatment in alcohol and cocaine co-administration: effects on gene expression in the rats’ prefrontal cortex”. Dr. Angel Santos accompanied by Dr. Fernando Rodriguez de Fonseca as secretary and Dra. Rosario Moratalla, Dr. Lluis Montolliu and Dr. Luis Fernando Aguacil as external examiners, chaired the defense.
Isabel Suela-Sanchez defended her thesis “Assessment of risk and protection factors of an universal drug prevention program in an educational environment” just a week later. Her thesis committees were Dra. Raquel Gomez De Herasas chairman, Dra. Gloria De Lucas as secretary and Dra.Noelia Granados, Dr.Ricardo Llorente and Dr. Gustavo Gonzalez Cuevas as external examiners
Dr. Jose Antonio Lopez-Moreno supervised both theses. Víctor Echeverrys thesis was also co-supervised by Dra. Elena Giné.
As the past years, our group has again formed part of the this year`s Science Week. Because of the great success of our last year’s activity “How do genes influence behavior and mental illness” we offered this activity again this year. Again, the activity started with a lecture held by Prof. Jose Antonio López Moreno and was followed by a guided tour through our laboratory and research facilities conducted by Victor Echeverry and Javier Calleja Conde.
This month two research papers from our group have been released. The first one, entitled “Histone Deacetylase Gene Expression Following Binge Alcohol Consumption in Rats and Humans”, has been published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research and analyses the expression patterns of HDACs 1-11 in peripheral blood in rats and humans, as well as in liver, heart and brain in rats, after alcohol consumption.
The second paper, has arisen from a collaboration between our group and the research group for Addiction Medicine leaded by Dra. Ana Polache from the University of Valencia. This paper is entitled “Acetadehyde sequestration by D-penicilamine prevents ethanol relapse-like drinking in rats: evidence from an operant self-administration paradigm” and has been published in the journal Psychopharmacology (Berl).
Prof. Jose Antonio López-Moreno will participate at the 2015 Meeting of the Spanish Network for Drug Addiction (Red de Trastornos Adictivos, RTA). The meeting will be held in Granada, Spain from the 22 to 23 of September 2015.
Several group members will attend the 15th Congress of the European Society for Biomedical Research on Alcoholism (ESBRA), which will be held in Valencia, Spain, from September 12 to 15 2015.
Team-leader Prof. Dr. Jose Antonio López Moreno will give a talk on pharmacological treatments for alcohol and cocaine interactions.
Our group will participate at the 17th Annual Genes, Brain & Behavior Meeting (IBANGS) which will take place in Uppsala (Sweden) from May 19 to 23, 2015.
At the meeting, Prof. Jose Antonio López-Moreno, Víctor Echeverry-Alzate and Javier Calleja-Conde will present a selection of our newest and most recent research results.
