DFG funded Excellence Cluster for Systems Neurology (SyNergy) accepted

Munich Cluster for Systems NeurologySummary: Neurodegenerative, inflammatory and vascular disorders have traditionally been studied in isolation from each other. The Munich Cluster for Systems Neurology (SyNergy) has chosen to take an integrative approach with a view to breaking down such artificial boundaries and unravel the interactions between the different underlying pathologies that contribute to the development of neurological disease. Thus, the researchers involved in the Cluster will study how inflammation reactions influence neurodegenerative processes, how microvascular and degenerative mechanisms combine to cause tissue damage, and how immune cells interact with the blood-brain barrier. To tackle these issues, the SyNergy Cluster, which can now be established in the context of the Excellence Initiative, is creating a network of highly qualified specialists, which brings basic and clinical researchers together with experts in systems analysis.
