Clinics and institutes

One of our long-term goals is to create a network of certified NBIA centers. A first step in this direction is the European Reference Network for Rare Neurological Diseases (ERN-RND). So far, the LMU and the TU in Munich form our most important NBIA center in Germany, with which we work closely together. Hoffnungsbaum e.V. works closely together.
