AIAS Fellow Fulvio Reggiori part of Lundbeck Foundation Collaborative Project

With a grant of DKK 20 million the interdisciplinary group of researchers will study Parkinson’s disease with the potential to change the perspective of 20 years of research in Parkinson’s disease.

The Principal Investigator of the Lundbeck Foundation Collaborative Project is Professor Poul Henning Jensen from the Department of Biomedicine and DANDRITE at Aarhus University and together with him are AIAS Fellow, Professor Fulvio Reggiori from AIAS and Department of Biomedicine at Aarhus University and Assistant Professor Marijn Kuijpers from Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Radboud University, the Netherlands.

The group will study the early changes that occur in neurons when the disease processes associated with Parkinson’s disease slowly accumulate. The multidisciplinary collaborative project will thus change the perspective of the last 20 years of research from focusing on the death of neurons to the preliminary dysfunctions of the neurons. Preliminary data suggest that the early changes can be inhibited – and if proven correct raises hope for future disease-modifying treatments.
