The Neuropathology group, led by Dr. Michel Mittelbronn, is a translational group linking more clinically orientated neuropathological diagnostics and research at the Laboratoire national de Santé (LNS) with basic neurodegenerative research at the LCSB, as well as neurooncological research at the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and is supported by the PEARL Excellence Programme for Research in Luxembourg of the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). The overarching goal is to translate clinico-pathological findings into cell culture- and animal-based experimental laboratory models and to validate basic research findings in patient cohorts. With this approach, we aim at deciphering the pathogenesis of neurological disorders as well as translate basic laboratory findings into diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
