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.

A new collaborative research study in which Dr. Georgios Pavlopoulos’ team from BSRC Alexander Fleming actively participated, demonstrates that the Human microbiome churns out thousands of tiny novel proteins which may be involved in diverse functions that have not yet been identified. [Pubmed]

Marietta Armaka from BSRC Alexander Fleming, Geert Van Loo (VIB, Ghent) and Manolis Pasparakis (Uni. Cologne, co-ordinator) supervised a study published in Nature Cell Biology which identifies a new molecular mechanism causing rheumatoid arthritis. [Nature Cell Biology]

10 April 2019

Kerdidani et al. from Tsoumakidou lab demonstrated that the Wnt1 oncoprotein signals paracrine on dendritic cells to silence chemokine genes and promote tumor immune escape.  In vivo RNA interference against Wnt1 activated anti-tumor immunity and halted tumor growth. [Pubmed]
