    „Huntington´s disease is not only a brain disorder: peripheral inflammation in porcine model of HD“( Valekova I et al.)
    „Disease markers in the brain of transgenic minipigs for the human mutated huntingtin (F2 generation, age 24 months)“ (Vochozkova P et al.)

  • Spolecnost pro pomoc pri Huntingtonove chorobe, Rekondicne-edukacni pobyt 2014, Prostejov 17-19 October, 2014
    Rekondicne-edukacni pobyty je zameren na vzdelavani a rekondici pacientů s HD, a jejich rodinných prislusniků a znamých. Velice radi tu prednasime o tom, jak postupuje výzkum HCH a hledani mozné terapie. Ing. Zdenka Ellederova, PhD. zde prezentovala prednasku: „Huntingtonova choroba-co delaji vedci.“

 

  • Society for help with Huntington's disease, Curative-educational residence 2014 Prostejov 17-19 October, 2014
    Reconditioning-educational stays focused on education and recovery of patients with HD and their family members and friends. We lecture about research progress of  HD and searching possibility of  treatment. Zdenka Ellederova, PhD. presented: "Huntington's disease-what scientists are doing."    

 

  • 1. workshop Czech-Norwegian Research Program, Vila Lanna, Prague, November 9, 2014
    Researchers, postdocs, PhD students and administrators of all four research teams took part.
    Researchers had a chance not only to listen and discuss research tasks of all WPs but also to establish important personals contacts among research teams. It is important that also administrators at the Czech and the Norwegian site had a chance to exchange all administrative details.
  • Conference COST Action BM1308 „Sharing advances on Large Animal Models“, Gene Center, Munich, December 15-17, 2014
    This meeting of European scientists focused on large animal model was a unique opportunity to make contacts and present our results. They were presented in two posters entitled: „Libechov Minipigs as a Model for Spinla Cord Injury, Huntington's
    Disease and Melanoma“ and „Biochemical and Immunohistochemical Characterization of Phenotype Development in the Transgenic Minipigs for N-terminal Part of Human Mutated Huntingtin“.

 

  • 10th Annual Huntington’s Disease Therapeutic Conference, Palm Springs, USA, February 23-26, 2015
    The Conference allowed scientific meetings of researchers who study Huntington's disease. On this occasion, Zdenka Ellederova, PhD. presented a poster :"Dilated cardiomyopathy- and amendments phanotype of transgenic minipigs for the N-terminal's part of human mutated huntingtin".


  • 9th European Huntington Disease Network Plenary Meeting, The Hague, Netherlands, September 16 - 18, 2016
    Zástupci Centra PIGMOD se v září 2016 sešli s partnery projektu z Norska na minisemináři řešitelů projektu, organizovaném v rámci mezinárodní vědecké konference EHDN.

 

  • From reproductive biology to large animal models of human diseases, Liběchov, September 23, 2016
    23.9. 2016 Proběhla v konferenčních prostorách areálu Rašínky v Liběchově mezinárodní konference vědců studujících Huntingtonovu chorobu, na které byly v rámci řešení projektu předneseny příspěvky: DNA double strand-breaks response during oocyte meiotic maturation (Petr Solc),
    From reproduction to Pig Models of Diseases - Introducing the PIGMOD Center (Zdenka Ellederova),
