NEUROLOGICAL, MENTAL DISORDERS AND AGEING

Genetics in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Main lines of research

  • Use of state-of the-art genomic strategies to study the genetic architecture of complex diseases caused by neurodegenerative processes, including Alzheimer disease and other dementias, Parkinson disease, and neuromuscular disorders.
  • Cloning and evaluation of novel genes associated with neurodegenerative disorders through genomic analyses on families with Mendelian pattern of inheritance.
  • Study of the relationship between biomarkers and endophenotypes at the individual genetic background.
  • Evaluation of the effect of novel genes related to neurodegenerative disorders in the Spanish population through multicentre collaborative studies.

Challenges

  • Assemble a research team of excellence in the international field of genetics of neurodegenerative disorders.
  • Increase our capacity of funding through EU support.
  • Develop a comprehensive genomic database from well-characterized Spanish patients of European origin suffering from neurodegenerative disorders.
