Together for a Life without Neurodegeneration
The German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) is a research institute funded by the German federal and state governments, comprising ten sites nationwide. It is dedicated to diseases of the brain and nervous system such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and ALS, which are associated with dementia, movement disorders and other serious health impairments. To date, there are no cures for these diseases, which place an enormous burden on countless affected individuals, their families and the healthcare system. The aim of DZNE is to develop novel strategies for prevention, diagnosis, care as well as treatment, and to transfer them into practice. To this end, DZNE cooperates with universities, university hospitals and other institutions in Germany and abroad. DZNE is a member of the Helmholtz Association.
