Diseases of the nervous system are at the heart of a German-Estonian research project

A joint German-Estonian research team at the University of Leipzig is using EUR 650 000, including ESF co-financing, to investigate the molecular mechanisms in diseases of the central nervous system. These include Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative afflictions. The research project, called MESCAMP, is being carried out in co-operation with the University of Tartu in Estonia.

As researcher Mark Morawski explains: “With the help of our partners we are working on initial Estonian results on key enzymes from an earlier project, which we are trying to reproduce and then incorporate into our new research.”
