Final Report - NEUROSCREEN (The Discovery of Future Neuro-therapeutic Molecules)

Project ID: 37766
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the NEUROSCREEN project which aimed to maximise the utility of new rodent and human neural stem (NS) cell lines in the design of unique assays for the tractable automated discovery of small molecules that modulate the biological function of neural stem cells and derivative neurons and glia. NEUROSCREEN built on a significant European discovery made within the European Commission (EC)-funded project EUROSTEMCELL.

In 2004, a new type of mammalian NS cell was discovered and NEUROSCREEN focused on the successful utilisation of this stem cell type in chemical genetic screening. Maintaining a clear focus on tools and technology development, while also researching basic comparative biology of different stem cell populations, has aided NEUROSCREEN in achieving meaningful progress towards this aim.
