Dementia research: 100,000 euros for transatlantic collaboration
The “Neurodegeneration Research Award”, endowed with 100,000 euros, goes to two neuroscientists in Munich and Boston. Sabina Tahirovic from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and Susan Cotman from the Massachusetts General Hospital will be using the prize money to research common mechanisms of dementia in children and adults.
The two-year project focuses on the brain’s immune cells. The NCL Foundation, with the support of the Joachim Herz Foundation, established this research promotion prize, which is awarded for the first time. The award ceremony took place in the run-up to the “Rare Disease Day”, which is celebrated worldwide on February 28.
