German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases

The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (German: Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen, DZNE) aims to develop new preventive and therapeutic approaches for neurodegenerative diseases. To accomplish this the DZNE follows a translational approach. This means that fundamental research is closely related to clinical research, population studies and health care research. In total there are nine sites all over Germany: Berlin, Bonn, Dresden, Göttingen, Magdeburg, Munich, Rostock / Greifswald, Tübingen and Witten. At each site the DZNE works closely with universities, university hospitals and other partners. The DZNE receives 90 percent of its funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and 10 percent from the respective federal states containing DZNE sites.

Coronavirus: Study finds further door opener into the cell

The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is known to infect cells via the receptor ACE2. An international research team under German-Finnish coordination has now identified neuropilin-1 as a factor that can facilitate SARS-CoV-2 entry ...

Alzheimer research: Noise-inducing neurons shut down memories

Neurons that are responsible for new experiences interfere with the signals of neurons that contain memories and thereby disturb the recall of memories—at least in mice. The research group of Martin Fuhrmann of the German ...

Artificial intelligence tracks down leukemia

Artificial intelligence can detect one of the most common forms of blood cancer—acute myeloid leukemia (AML)—with high reliability. Researchers at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University ...

Neuroscience

A tailor-made molecule that ties nerve connections

Researchers from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), UK and Japan have developed a neurologically acting protein and tested it in laboratory studies. In mice, the experimental compound ameliorated symptoms ...

Neuroscience

An immunological memory in the brain

Inflammatory reactions can change the brain's immune cells in the long term—meaning that these cells have an "immunological memory." This memory may influence the progression of neurological disorders that occur later in ...

Genetics

Risk gene for Alzheimer's has early effects on the brain

A genetic predisposition to late-onset Alzheimer's disease affects how the brains of young adults cope with certain memory tasks. Researchers from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Ruhr-Universität ...
