Free communication at the BASS Autumn Meeting

I went to Gent, last Friday, to the BASS Autumn Meeting. With “New drugs for sleep” as a title and mainly physicians and psychatrists in the audience, I didn’t expected to have a lot of “basic science” presentations but the University of Liege was well represented by T. Dang-Vu, P. Peigneux, C. Schmidt and me in the free communications section (btw, we are all four from the Cyclotron Research Center). I outlined some recent findings on proteins differentially expressed after a short-term sleep deprivation. I had a nice question from Prof. Verbraecken (UZA) and, next time, I’ll focus more on pathways and physiological implications of proteins found rather than on functions only.
