Over the last years research at the Department of Neurology has focused around three central themes:
- neurodegenerative diseases: Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and child neurological diseases
- neuromuscular diseases: myopathies, channelopathies cerebrovascular diseases: (young) stroke and TIA
Within these research areas we currently have four principal investigators and four junior principal investigators working at our department. This research is increasingly being performed in large prospective cohorts and trials, for which we make use of innovative neuroimaging and the structured and standardized storage of biological material. For this purpose a trial and cohort research office will be founded over the next year; this office will also facilitate biobanking.
In 2010 the scientific output of the Neurology Department included over 200 publications, of which more than 10 percent in journals with the highest impact factor. This makes our department in research the quantitatively and qualitatively best performing department of the Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre.
Next to performing top research we also excel in health care and are highly involved in education. On this website you will find information on all the different activities of the Department of Neurology. (The pages on health care are in Dutch.)
