The Adolf Messer Foundation is funding a study at the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Anatomy

Prof. Dr. Abdelhaq Rami, a scientist working at the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Anatomy, is investigating the molecular mechanisms that can lead to the destruction of nerve cells following a stroke or other form of brain damage. The aim is to elucidate the cell death machinery in order to develop new possibilities for therapeutic intervention in stroke cases. The study is being funded by 81,000 Euro from the Adolf Messer Foundation.

Heredoataxia Prize 2008 for ICNF researcher

On 15.03.2008, PD Dr. Rüb, member of the research group Clinical Neuroanatomy, was awarded the 2008 Heredoataxia Prize by the German Heredoataxia Society e.V. (DHAG). Heredoataxia, or hereditary ataxia, is the name given to rare neurodegenerative diseases of the nervous system that progress insidiously, eventually leading to the affected patients suffering severe motor disruption (ataxia).

Ageing research at the ICNF
