A new EU Horizons project, which involves Professor Trevor Sharp in Pharmacology, aims to train the next generation of serotonin researchers and deliver new fundamental insights in how early life changes in serotonin caused by genetic or environmental factors alter brain development and thereby contribute to the cause of serotonergic psychiatric disorders. These new insights have the potential to reveal novel targets for future therapies, as well as the developmental windows in which such interventions would be most effective.

This multi-disciplinary project, led by Professor Judith Homberg of Translational Neuroscience at Radboudumc, brings together researchers from leading European universities and institutes to create a network with world-leading expertise in serotonin research and training. Together, these partners will train fifteen talented PhD-students to lead research in serotonin, neural development and psychiatry in the years ahead. Applications for a DPhil place in the Sharp group, as part of this project can be made online at https://www.serotonin-and-beyond-project.eu/
