Why and how to support us
Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis and ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) are the most commonly known neurodegenerative diseases, and many families are touched, directly or indirectly, by the burdens of these diseases.
While we work to support patients afflicted by these disorders, we often forget that, as for other diseases or injuries of the nervous system, the development of novel and effective therapies is inevitably rooted in basic research. This kind of research is very rarely highlighted by the press, but it is fundamental for elucidating the mechanisms that underlie degenerative processes and for gaining insight into how these mechanisms can be applied to the repair and regeneration of neural tissues.
We welcome donations to sustain our research activities in general, or to support specific research projects . All donations will be appropriately acknowledged.

Events & Meetings
Our young researchers present their work to collegues. From January to December, every two weeks, on friday at 2:00 pm
Seminars Room, NICO
Since 2001, this meeting represented an important event for basic and clinical researchers working on this emerging scientific topic. We will address state-of-the-art approaches in the field of steroids and nervous system, including behavior, epigenetics, genomic and non-genomic actions, the vitamin D, neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders, and the interference among endocrine disruptors and steroid signaling.
