About the project


Integrative structural biology of pathological tau protein, an appealing therapeutic target for Alzheimer's disease modifying drugs


We are aiming to:

  • establish a strong network of academic-industrial partners with cutting-edge, unique proprietary technologies and knowledge
  • achieve scientific advancement in understanding the pathways of tau in neurodegeneration
  • adopt a unique panel of techniques and considering important interaction partners of pathologic tau
  • foster novel tools for neurodegeneration diagnostics and therapy
