PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology / UCM | Spain

Ismael Galve-Roperh works in the Dept. of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, of the Complutense University and CIBERNED, in Madrid, Spain. There he leads the research group “Cannabinoids and neurogenesis”. He studies the signalling mechanisms regulating neural cell generation and survival in pathophysiological situations. In the last two decades, he has investigated the role of the endocannabinoid system in the nervous system with contributions including the antitumoral action of CB1 receptor activation against gliomas and its neuroprotective action in Huntington’s disease. More recently he has focused in the neurodevelopmental role of cannabinoid signalling. His work has implications in the understanding of the deleterious consequences of altered cannabinoid signalling, but also to the potential to contribute to the development of new therapeutic strategies. The work of his group is recognized by publications in high impact journals and the translational aspects derived from their research validated by patents or the development of novel clinical trials.

His Conference will be about:
