About Us



Coordinated by Celia R. Carlini, the LaNeurotox – Laboratory of Neurotoxins belongs to the Brain Institute (Instituto do Cérebro-InsCer) of the Pontificia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul (PUCRS).

At LaNeurotox we study neurotoxic proteins and peptides at the physicochemical and biological levels, focusing urease and derived peptides and their effects on nervous cells of insects and mammals.
