WELCOME TO THE TOPAG PROJECT WEBSITE!

ToPAG (Toxic Protein AGgregation in Neurodegeneration) is a new six-year interdisciplinary research project funded by the EU and carried out by two Max Planck Institutes. ToPAG’s central focus is neurodegeneration, the progressive loss of structure and function of nerve cells (neurons). Neurodegeneration eventually results in neuronal death, either of motor neurons leading to motor impairment or in central neurons leading to dementia. More than 40 million people worldwide live with dementia, a neurological syndrome which affects memory, thinking and the ability to perform everyday life activities. By 2050, this number is expected to triple. Without effective treatments ... (more)
