The scientists at BSRC “Alexander Fleming” perform cutting-edge research, aiming to understand molecular mechanisms of complex biological processes in health and disease. We are also committed to contribute to innovation in medicine, by developing novel therapeutic and diagnostic methods, focusing on immunity and inflammation, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases. To keep our focus on top-notch research, we recruit at all levels with excellence as the sole criterion and we support our researchers by providing state-of-the science infrastructures and a pleasant working environment. FLEMING is a non-profit organization operating under the auspices of the Greek General Secretariat for Research & Technology and is supported by the Greek government and by national, European and international grants.

Rheumatoid arthritis and Spondyloarthritis are accompanied by several comorbid pathologies in human patients, often involving heart, lung and intestinal pathologies. Using the TNF-driven model of murine arthritis, Fleming researchers recently revealed the co-occurrence of arthritis with valvular heart disease. PubMed , Ann Rheum Dis, Editorial.

Two Fleming doctoral students (Panagiotis Chouvardas and Rania Semelidou) have been selected to attend the prestigious 68th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, following a nomination by the Onassis Foundation. This year’s Meeting is dedicated to Physiology and Medicine and will bring together 600 young scientists and a record 43 Nobel Laureates.

15 February 2018

In a collaborative study published in Cell Reports, a Fleming Stavros Niarchos fellow uncovered a novel mechanism that determines the number of cortical interneurons in the brain. The research has important implications for improving the effectiveness of cell-based therapies for epilepsy syndromes. PubMed.
