08 May 2012 - Adrian gives lectures and acts as PhD examiner

Adrian Newman-Tancredi PhD gave lectures on the pharmacology of antipsychotics at 5 different psychiatric care institutions in Belgium between 24th and 26th April 2012. The lecture tour was sponsored by Bristol Myers Squibb and focused on the mechanism of action of recent antipsychotics. In particular, discussion centred on the distinctive profile of aripiprazole (Abilify®) which possesses partial agonist properties at dopamine D2 and serotonin 5-HT1A receptors.

Adrian maintains contacts with academic research. With Prof. Philippe Marin, he acted as external examiner for a PhD candidate at the Institut Pierre et Marie Curie (22nd March 2012). The thesis work was carried out in the laboratory of Prof. Denis Hervé and was co-supervised by Dr. Clothilde Mannoury-La Cour. The results on the signal transduction mechanisms of dopamine D2 and D3 receptors were successfully presented by Marie-Josèphe Salles, who was awarded the doctorate.
