Why do some people with multiple sclerosis show disability progression while others do not? Does the immune system trigger or rather respond to the neuronal damage underlying this progression? Our neuroimaging research group at the Institute of Translational Neurology is dedicated to the study of this interplay between inflammation, demyelination and neurodegeneration in multiple sclerosis. To achieve this, we combine conventional and novel experimental imaging technologies with cutting edge post processing and statistical tools. You will join a dynamic research institute working in close collaboration with the Department of Neurology.
