    Congratulations to Valeria Mussetto!

    winner of the ANA Best Thesis Award 2024

    Her PhD work in Jürgen Sandkühler’s lab at the Center for Brain Research in Vienna aimed at understanding the neurobiological substrates of the emotional components of pain. In particular, she focused on the lateral parabrachial nucleus, a brainstem center that is crucial for pain aversion, and investigated how neuro-glial transmission can be modulated in this area.

    She discovered two novel forms of synaptic plasticity at glutamatergic synapses triggered by opioid administration, identifying the parabrachial nucleus as a new site of opioid-induced neuronal adaptations and describing the first direct evidence of plasticity in this structure. Additionally, Valeria’s work shed light into the largely unexplored roles of parabrachial glial cells, expanding our understanding of regional variability in neuro-immuno-glial networks in the brain and providing insights into the differential contribution of glia to specific aspects of pathological pain.

    Valeria’s findings have significant implications for our understanding of opioid abuse and chronic pain mechanisms and can open new avenues for the treatment of these conditions. Details of her findings can be found on JPain and Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience.

    On behalf of the meeting organizers, we would like to invite you to the 3rd Locus Coeruleus meeting in Innsbruck

    About the meeting:

    The Locus Coeruleus Meeting is a small and quite diverse meeting that tries to understand the early vulnerability of the locus coeruleus and other neuromodulatory nuclei in aging and neurodegenerative conditions.

    About the participants: 

    The meeting aims to bring together researchers with a background in clinical research on neurodegenerative conditions, cognitive neuroscience, MRI Physics, neuroscience in animal models, and other relevant disciplines with an interest in neuromodulatory systems and in particular the noradrenergic locus coeruleus in health and disease. 

    Where and when:

    The meeting will take place at the Grillhof in Innsbruck from the 9th to the 11th of September 2024.


    Registration will be open until the 15th of April 2024

    Please do not hesitate to email us with any questions

    On November 29, registration will open for our 2024 FENS Forum (June 25-29, 2024, Messe Wien). We host this meeting with our partner, the Hungarian Neuroscience Society. You already find plenty of information on the meeting, including the Preliminary Program with all Plenary Lectures and Symposia, on the Forum Website.

    A major task for the two Host Societies ANA and MITT is the organization of the ECTP (Early Career Training Program), where labs in Austria and Hungary host young scientists for a 2-3 weeks period prior to the FENS Forum. Both FENS and IBRO support the program by providing individual travel grants á 1,000 Euro for each successful visitor.

    Besides opening opportunities for our guests, the program is also a unique chance to showcase neuroscience research in Austria. Hence, all attendees of the Forum can see the (hopefully) comprehensive list of labs where neuroscience research takes place in Austria. The list may thus be seen as a compass of our neuroscience community at large.

    In order to give our labs the opportunity to still register for the program we extend the deadline for registration to October 27, 2023. For further information on the program and to register please fill out the online form following this link.

    Looking forward to your participation in the program, sincerely yours

    Isabella Sarto-Jackson, ANA President
