The Center of Excellence for Neurodegenerative Diseases of the University of Milan (CEND), acknowledged in 2001 by the Italian Ministry for University and Scientific and Technological Research (now MIUR), is an interdepartmental and multidisciplinary center born to pursue excellence in research on the molecular bases of neurodegenerative diseases. By forcing cooperation among laboratories which are far from each other, both physically and culturally, but share common research interests, CEND launched a new way of making research . . .
Scientists with well differentiated background working with the common goal: defeat neurodegenerative diseases
CEND is a virtual center: all participating laboratories are distributed among different Departments within the University of Milan
Scientists working at CEND are involved in several teaching programmes: graduate, post-graduate, doctoral and continuing education
