About the talk
Since the begin of January 2017, the Luxembourg Centre of Neuropathology (LCNP) has been established and covers a diagnostic unit at the LNS. Furthermore, two research groups located at the Luxembourg Centre of Systems Biomedicine (LCSB, focus on neurodegeneration) and Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH, focus on neurooncology) belong to the LCNP.
The talk will cover clinical aspects of neuropathology including brain tumors, neurodegenerative, neuropediatric (including gastrointestinal motility disorders such as Hirschsprung disease), peripheral neuromuscular, neurovascular and neuroinflammatory disorders as well as aspects of forensic neuropathology. Therefore the talk will be of interest for a broad spectrum of clinical colleagues.
In addition, clinical scientists or basic researchers are welcome since very recent diagnostic innovations such as epigenetic profiling of neurological disorders will be also adressed.
The event is co-organised by the Luxembourg Society of Neurology (SLN) and generously supported by ROCHE.
About FNR PEARL Chair Prof Mittelbronn
At the beginning of January 2017, renowned neuropathologist Professor Dr. Michel Mittelbronn joined the Laboratoire national de santé (LNS) in a joint appointment with the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg. Endowed with a 2,6 million euro FNR PEARL Chair, Professor. Michel Mittelbronn will set up for the first time a diagnostic neuropathology unit at the LNS and build a research team together with LIH and LCSB to strengthen the research activities in neuro-oncology (at LIH) and neurodegenerative diseases (at LCSB).
