A research consortium funded by the EU with ~12 Million € has been launched.
The project entitled "Targets and biomarkers for antiepileptogenesis" (EPITARGET)
is focused on identifying novel biomarkers for epileptogenesis and exploring new ways of how to treat epilepsy.
The project brings together 18 partners from 10 different European countries,
An ERC Advanced Grant was awarded to Prof. Istvan Mody (The other side of optogenetics: multicolored genetically encoded hybrid voltage sensors (GEVOS) for ultrafast membrane potential measurements in cortical microcircuits), who will come to Bonn to establish techniques for genetically encoded voltage sensing in neurons. Prof. Mody is already an associate member of the SFB 1089, and will start his work at the Department of Epileptology in Bonn in March 2014. The ERC Advanced Grant is funded for the next 5 years with a sum of 3.5 Million €.
