The second of the bi-annual newsletter, created by the NCER-PD consortium to regularly brief all interested parties about the progress of the programme, is now available.
Amongst other information, it contains an update from the large clinical cohort study, which forms the centre piece of the NCER-PD programme. The newsletter features an interview with Rudi Balling, Director of the LCSB, as well as information about past and upcoming events.
NCER Summer Party
On Friday, 8 July from 14:00 – 17:00, the NCER team we will celebrate the 1st NCER-PD summer party on Campus Belval to thank participants for their participation. The plan is to have 3 rounds of lab tours/workshops in the afternoon. Interested parties should register (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In 2015, the FNR launched the National Centre of Excellence in Research on Parkinson’s disease (NCER-PD). The aim of this new 8-year programme, which involves all national actors in biomedical research, is to identify new methods for the early diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and the stratification of patients in sub-groups. One key element of the programme is a national long-term clinical PD study, which already started in 2015.
