  • Neurodegenerative disease in general
Research abstract in English

The understanding of the molecular pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases has advanced to such a degree that translation of this research into clinically relevant outcomes is a reality. The mission of the Centre will be to further understand mechanisms of neurodegeneration and to translate this into new treatments, new biomarkers and improved understanding of the signs and symptoms of these diseases.
