Basic, translational and clinical research are complementary disciplines of biomedical sciences. Whilst translational research ensures that new findings progress into clinical validation, clinical research raises the appropriate questions to be addressed by experimental research. In the interest of patients, translational research at the LBN is therefore channeled on validated therapeutic targets, disease models and read-outs.
The LBN offers the advantage of being embedded within a center of excellence for the cure of neurological disorders. So, we established the reciprocal fostering between experimental research inspired by clinicians and experimental research dedicated at the study of human disease.
The vision of the LBN is to advance the understanding of human neurodegenerative disorders in order to significantly improve the medical practice at the benefit of the patient, family and caregivers.
