The Department of Neurology belongs to the UULM. Within the clinic 3000 patients are seen. The neurochemical lab is linked to the University hospital. More than 2000 CSF samples are analysed routinely each year.
Patients are diagnosed according to state of the art criteria. In the centre for neurodegenerative disorders 400 patients are seen on a routine basis.
The consortium will especially profit from the international acknowledged expertise in the field of neurodegenerative diseases, the specialised out-clinic for neurodegenerative disorders.
The laboratory for Neurochemistry encompasses approximately 300m2 of laboratory space. The instrumentation includes amongst others 2 fully equipped cell culture labs, a MSD electrochemiluminescence Reader, Luminex reader an ELISA reader, 1- and 2-D Electrophoresis equipment with a highly sensitive INTas imager for chemiluminescence quantification and a Biocore.
