About us

The Institute of Neurogenetics focuses its clinical and research activities on hereditary forms of movement disorders, mainly Parkinson disease and dystonia. Discovering the genetic factors causing or contributing to movement disorders is the Institute’s main aim of research.

With an interdisciplinary team of movement disorder specialists, clinician and basic scientists, study nurses and research technologists, PhD and medical students closely collaborating, the research is translational and interdisciplinary in nature and directed from the patient to the bench and back.

Career development and teaching are an important and integral part of the Institute’s work. Neurology residents participate in structured movement disorders and neurogenetics fellowships; Bachelor, Master, and PhD students in the field of Molecular Life Sciences are trained at the Institute.
