Summary of key aims

The aim of this specific research area is to study the epidemiological, psychosocial and biological aspects of the neurodegenerative diseases of old age in Luxembourg and view them against the broader European canvas. Priority will be given to projects which are multidisciplinary and interactive, involving players from different specialist backgrounds.
Objectives :
- To improve the skills of the biomedical community in Luxembourg and the transfer of knowledge concerning pathologies linked to ageing of the brain
- To correlate medical, epidemiological, psychosocial and biological aspects
- To improve the prevention of cerebrovascular accidents (strokes)
- To acquire innovative detection methods for neurodegenerative diseases, depression, sleep disorders and chronic pain in the elderly
- To devise new specific treatment strategies for the above pathologies
- To improve the care of the patients and their families
- To develop new therapies
The aim, in pursuing these objectives, is to attain an internationally recognised level of medical and scientific competence and to ensure that work done under this programme meshes with other national and international projects.
