Final Report - NGIDD (Neuron-Glia Interactions in Nerve Development and Disease)

Project ID: 201535
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

This is the final report for the NGIDD project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). NGIDD aimed to shed further insight into our knowledge regarding the molecular mechanisms that underlie axon-glia communication in health and disease and identify new drug targets to stimulate the regenerative capacity of the nervous system. The report includes an executive summary providing an overall overview of the project. It goes on explaining the initial events leading up to myelination, the control of myelin formation, the functional organisation of myelinated axons, as well as the disturbed interactions between glial cells and neurons and then briefly outlines the achievements in each work package. The report also presents the activities and related outcomes of each work package and closes with a summary description of the results' potential impact.
