Press Release: New Center for MS and Neurosciences - United against multiple sclerosis

TUM's university hospital Klinikum rechts der Isar will be home to a unique research center: The Center for Multiple Sclerosis and Neurosciences will unite research, therapy development and treatment under a single roof. Several SyNergy members will have their coming labs in the new building. A groundbreaking ceremony marked the official beginning of construction for the center. The new construction made possibe by a substantial donation from the Klaus Tschira Foundation.


Over 250,000 people suffer from multiple sclerosis (MS) in Germany alone. MS is a nervous system disease which still cannot be cured. Every year approximately 15,000 new cases of MS are diagnosed. Consequently, there is an urgent need for intensive research and new therapeutic approaches.

At the groundbreaking ceremony Bavarian Minister of Science and the Arts Markus Blume stated: "A shovel-full of earth for a humanitarian act! Multiple sclerosis is the illness with a thousand faces. The new Center for Multiple Sclerosis and Neurosciences at the TUM Klinikum rechts der Isar will do everything possible to increase our understanding of MS and to find even better therapeutic approaches. Here we see high-end care uniting with cutting-edge research. My sincere gratitude goes out to the Klaus Tschira Foundation for their tremendous commitment!"
