DZNE site Tübingen

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.

The results will be 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 will establish up to two departments, five junior research groups and central service units with the latest technologies and resources. A research-oriented, English-speaking graduate training centre for neuroscience shall provide an intensive support of young scientists. The departments and research groups of the DZNE will find accommodation in a new building.
