The working groups of the DZNE in Tübingen study the causes and effects of neurodegenerative diseases of the aging human brain, particularly Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, Fronto temporal Dementia and Motor Neuron Disease, Ataxia’s and Spastic Paraplegia.
The research is translated into new strategies for diagnosis, prevention and therapy. This calls for a research environment and an infrastructure that allow the recruitment of top-class scientists and the identification of basic research areas that promise innovative applications of clinical relevance in diagnosis and treatment.
For this purpose, the site in Tübingen has established nine research groups and central service units with the latest technologies and resources. Researchers at the site collaborate closely with other researchers at the Tübingen Research Campus and especially with researchers of the Neuroscience Campus of Tubingen including the University Clinic Tubingen; the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research (HIH) and The Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN).
The DZNE- Tübingen participates in a research-oriented, English-speaking graduate training centre for neuroscience to provide intensive training and support of the next generations of young scientists.
The research groups of the DZNE are located in the new DZNE building, the HIH building and the University Clinics on the Neuroscience Campus Tubingen.
