    Neuroscience Network Düsseldorf

    The Neuroscience Network Düsseldorf is a collaborative research network in which basic and clinical neuroscientists from the Heinrich Heine University (HHU) Düsseldorf, the Research Centre Jülich, and the IUF - Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine Düsseldorf work together in multidisciplinary projects ranging from basic brain research to translational and clinical neuroscience. A particular focus is placed on the investigation of disease-associated pathomechanisms in common diseases of the central nervous system, in particular multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, brain tumours, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, and metabolic encephalopathies. more
