We are delighted to announce that scientists from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) have been awarded a prestigious EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Initial Training Network grant, in collaboration with 4 academic institutions, 2 pharmaceutical companies, 3 SMEs, and 1 non-profit research charity, from four European countries (Austria, Germany, Sweden, and the UK).

The grant entitled TOBeATPAIN: Targeting neuroinflammation to combat pathological pain in neurodegenerative diseases and chronic pain syndromes” has a total value of EUR 2.87 million.

TOBeATPAIN will train eleven Early Stage Researchers on how to investigate the underlying mechanisms of pathological pain in neurodegenerative diseases, musculoskeletal conditions and peripheral neuropathies, with the ultimate aim to train them to delineate novel therapeutic strategies.

The IoPPN team is led by Professor Marzia Malcangio and will focus on pain in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases.  The other IoPPN investigators are Professors Clive Ballard, Dr. Susan Duty, Professor Ray Chaudhuri and Professor Federico Turkheimer, with Professor Steve Williams and Dr Matthew Howard providing expertise in fMRI imaging.
