At the HERV’s & Disease symposium on human endogenous retroviruses, organised on 5 and 6 November in Lyon, a session will focus on mental health. An opportunity to develop synergies between the teams working on this axes, which has been selected as a very innovative perspective by the Fondation FondaMental Suisse’s Projects Selection Committee: the ‘Immunology and Bipolar Disorders’ seed project and the ‘HERV No Stress’ program, which includes pre-clinical and clinical studies of the implication of human endogenous retroviruses in psychiatric disorders.
