"Exzellent erklärt – Spitzenforschung für alle" finally is online! The German science podcast on current scientific topics reflects the research diversity of all clusters of excellence, funded by DFG.

You will hear SyNergy's contribution to the new podcast beginning of October 2021. SyNergy member Christian Haass will talk about Alzheimer's disease [in German]


SyNergy – the "Munich Cluster for Systems Neurology" wants to promote integrative research into a broad range of neurological diseases, with the aim to improve pathomechanistic understanding and eventually therapeutic options. The central focus is to foster intense collaboration amongst 24 principal investigators, 25 associate investigators and SyNergy professorships and clinician scientists across the traditional boundaries of neurodegenerative, inflammatory and vascular diseases (see executive summary of the cluster). more

Coordinators of the Cluster are Christian Haass (LMU) and Thomas Misgeld (TUM)

SyNergy member Mikael Simons receives prestigious ERC Advanced Grant. Congratulations!
