Alzheimerʼs to be studied by Hungarian, Turkish team
Brain scientists from Hungary and Turkey have teamed up to launch a joint research program focusing on Alzheimerʼs disease, according to a neurobiologist at the co-partnering University of Pécs.
The neurobiologist, István Hernádi, said this is the first time that Hungarian-Turkish brain research is being carried out in cooperation with a research center at Istanbul Kultur University.
While the Hungarian university excels in basic research and pre-clinical study, it will benefit from the Turkish teamʼs several decades of expertise in the clinical research of Alzheimerʼs disease in their combined effort to look into the background of neuro-degenerative diseases, Hernádi said.
He also explained that the program has a scheduled span of 3-5 years and the teams intend to apply for funding from the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency among other sources.
