A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

About

The original flagship application of HBP entitled the use of computational methods to design drugs. referred to as CDP6 was implemented April 1 2017 (though effectively end of July 2017) to foster a collaboration within HBP with the principal aim to fight against brain diseases by designing new drugs taking benefit of the new computational methodologies available.

It has been lead by JP Changeux (Institut Pasteur France) and P Carloni with G Rosetti as Scientific manager (both from Juelich Allemagne). 

The scientific aims of CDP6 are twice : 

  1. Exploit the recent developments of molecular dynamic simulations to target drug candidates to sites present on neurotransmitter receptors and  – 
  2. Adopt, instead of the classical concept of steric analogy the new paradigm of allosteric interaction between topographically distinct sites which are mediated by a discrete & reversible conformational change of the protein. The concept was shown to apply to the signal transduction process mediated by neurotransmitter receptors and new pharmacological effectors, referred to as allosteric modulators were discovered that enhance or depress the transduction process when they bind to sites distinct from the orthosteric sites for the neurotransmitter using both the G-proteins-receptors  and the ligand gated ion channels like the nicotinic receptor (Changeux & Christopoulos 2016).

 

The Human Brain Project is a H2020 FET Flagship Project which strives to accelerate the fields of neuroscience, computing and brain-related medicine.
