The Polymenidou group receives competitive EU Consortium Grant

As coordinator of the ImageTDP43 consortium, the Polymenidou group has been awarded a competitive EU Consortium Grant from the 'EU Joint Programme - Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND).

The project 'ImageTDP43: Imaging heterogeneous TDP-43 neuropathologies' aims at developing TDP-43 PET ligands that will allow to accurately detect and monitor TDP-43-related neurodegenerative progression in diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration with TDP-43 pathology (FTLD-TDP).

The ImageTDP43 consortium brings together world-class academic partners from Fondazione Santa Lucia (Italy), Skåne University Hospital (Sweden) and Erasmus Medical Center (Netherlands), as well as industry partner AC Immune (Switzerland).
