Networking and collaboration
The Research Initiative has been established initially as a network of independent research units that will be gathered together at the Department for Neuroscience and Pharmacology at University of Copenhagen where the coordinator is based. The cohesion of the BBB network will result from the common research projects and interests and will be secured through regular workshops and meetings focused on scientific review and technical training. In addition, the group will take advantage of web-based networking and meetings.
The Research Initiative’s aspiration is to establish a cutting-edge research program that goes beyond the current possibilities of each group. The labs will work together to generate high impact research and will focus on developing new research methodologies and approaches for studying drug transport across the BBB, cellular communication in the brain, and regulation of the BBB.
