The identification of biomarkers and modeling

From a medical-scientific point of view, DHUNE is working on the identification of new biomarkers for the various neurodegenerative diseases using for example brain imaging techniques together with modelling approaches (The Virtual Brain Project).

 

Objectives: to identify the neurobiological substrates of neurodegenerative diseases related to the different syndromes, monitor their progress and determine common or different neurobiological data between and within different neurodegenerative diseases.

 

DHUNE benefits from exceptional resources to conduct ambitious research work - high-tech equipment such as the MRI 7T scanner, the only apparatus of this type available in a hospital in France, the PET scanner and the Gamma Knife – thanks to the support of expert structures such as the Clinical Investigation Center.
