26 January 2015 - Adrian gives invited lecture at Bristol University

Adrian Newman-Tancredi, PhD, DSc, gave an invited lecture on Monday 19 January 2015 at the highly-recognized School of Physiology and Pharmacology of Bristol University (UK). The lecture was entitled: "Improved control of mood and cognition: a new generation of serotonergic antidepressants?" (see Bristol Uni. announcement) and described recent neurochemical and molecular evidence indicating that targeting of serotonin receptors can be improved by 'biased agonists' that preferentially activate specific brain regions involved in antidepressant effects.

Adrian's visit to the University of Bristol was hosted by Dr. Ana Abdala Sheik and by Prof. Julian Paton, who are experts in the physiology of respiratory control. As Chief Scientific Officer of Neurolixis, Adrian collaborates with Julian and Ana to characterize a serotonin 5-HT1A receptor biased agonist, NLX-101, in transgenic mouse models of Rett syndrome, a serious orphan disroder.
