Entering the final year of ProtectMove and moving forward

Research Unit FOR2488 (on reduced penetrance in hereditary movement disorders) is about to enter into its final year. Thus, we thought it would be of great importance to transition our insights and new ideas to the next level by drafting a proposal for a Collaborative Research Center (Sonderforschungsbereich, SFB) for consideration by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The draft proposal on reduced penetrance and expressivity in hereditary brain disorders is currently under review.

Assembling people and ideas to build the draft proposal for CRC1695: brainstorming conference in Lübeck in September 2021 with Prof. Thomas Gasser as keynote speaker, followed by research retreats at the European Academy in Bolzano, Italy (Aninstitute of the University of Lübeck) in June 2022, and at the University of Lübeck in September 2022, and several online meetings (Webex and gather.town).
