Neuro - Neural Plasticity and Repair
The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR), Neuro - Neural Plasticity and Repair, is working on restoring the functions of the nervous system following injury or sickness. It therefore investigates the cellular and molecular mechanisms of regeneration, plasticity and functional repair of damaged nervous systems. The research focuses on Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, strokes and spinal cord injuries. The NCCR Neuro promotes synergies between experimental and clinical research in collaboration with biologists, physicians and engineers. They develop new therapies, generate leading-edge technologies and provide tools and services. The University of Zurich and ETH Zurich have extended considerably the research field of the NCCR Neuro. Further expansion is planned for the future.
