Summary of key aims

A growing number of people are suffering from common diseases such as cancer, cardio-vascular diseases, metabolic diseases, infectious diseases, lung diseases or neurodegenerative diseases. In many cases, it still takes too long for the results of research into these diseases to become part of regular medical care and thus benefit patients. Making this process, which is known as translation, faster and more effective is one of the key principles behind the framework programme. The Federal Government is establishing German Centres for Health Research to pool research into a number of particularly important common diseases.


The German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen – DZNE) is a research institute within the Helmholtz association that studies neurodegenerative diseases. Its mission is to understand the causes and risk factors that lead to a predisposition for neurodegeneration and to develop new therapeutic and health care strategies. In order to promote high quality research in the field of neurodegeneration, the DZNE closely collaborates with its partner Universities.
