Magdeburg is an internationally recognized site for neuroscience. The aim of the campaign is to draw the public’s attention to these activities and to inform about the possibility of getting involved. “Citizens can make an important contribution to brain and dementia research by participating in scientific studies. With their engagement, they can help to pave the way for better therapies against Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases,” said Prof. Emrah Düzel, speaker for the DZNE’s Magdeburg site. “I am very thankful that our Lord Mayor Dr. Lutz Trümper has expressed a strong interest in this project and that we are receiving active support from the Science Team of the City of Magdeburg."
More on the campaign can be found online at www.kopfmachen.de. This website also offers the opportunity to register for participation in scientific studies without commitment.
The DZNE researches neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) at ten sites throughout Germany with the aim of developing novel strategies to prevention, treatment, and health care. The DZNE was founded in 2009. It is a member of the Helmholtz Association.
