Collaborative networks help improve the life of Parkinson’s disease patients

Important research being carried out in the University of Luxembourg’s Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) on Parkinson’s Disease is having a global impact. Additionally, it plays a coordinating role in Luxembourg’s National Centre of Excellence in Research on Parkinson’s Disease (NCER-PD). This is a joint Parkinson’s Disease research program that includes several biomedical research partners committed to finding new ways to affect earlier diagnoses and develop better treatments.

To develop the sensor and the other clinical and pharmaceutical research for the NCER-PD project, LCSB researchers need to process huge amounts of data, corroborate the data and collaborate among five major partners in the project. This collaborative computational infrastructure is possible because of the RESTENA Foundation’s world-class national research & education network.

The RESTENA Foundation provides essential infrastructure necessary for the work of the University of Luxembourg and nearly all of the NCER-PD project partners who are working to develop the next generation of diagnostic and treatment models for patients with Parkinson’s disease.
