    Andras is studying the ghrelin receptor signaling in neuronal tissue. His interest is focused on investigatingthe interaction of ghrelin and dopamine receptor signaling systems. He recently identified the functional and structural interaction between these two receptors in the brain and its role in feeding behavior.

    After a career in Biophysics, Dr. Alfredo Iacoangeli accepted his PhD “cum laude” in Life Sciences in January 2016 from “Sapienza” University of Rome where he worked in Tramontano’s Lab on structural bioinformatics with a particular focus on protein structure prediction and protein-peptide interaction. He is now the Bioinformatics lead of a joint project between the Department of Basic and Clinical Neuroscience and the MRC Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre, at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience at King’s College London. The aim of this project is the development of a high throughput gene, environment and epigenetics database and analysis system for international ALS research.Dr. Iacoangeli is first author of several scientific articles in the field of Structural and Genomic Bioinformatics and ALS genetics.

    Dr. Jun Hua is an Associate Professor in the F.M. Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging at Kennedy Krieger Institute, and the Russell H. Morgan Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Hua’s research has centered on the development of novel MRI technologies for in vivo functional and physiological imaging in the brain, and the application of such methods for studies in healthy and diseased brains. These include the development of human and animal MRI methods to measure functional brain activities, cerebral perfusion and oxygen metabolism at high (3 Tesla) and ultra-high (7 Tesla and above) magnetic fields. He is particularly interested in novel MRI approaches to image small blood and lymphatic vessels in the brain. Collaborating with clinical investigators, these techniques have been applied 1) to detect functional, vascular and metabolic abnormalities in the brain in neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntingdon’s disease (HD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and mental disorders such as schizophrenia; and 2) to map brain functions and cerebrovascular reactivity for presurgical planning in patients with vascular malformations, brain tumors and epilepsy
