Addressing Neurological Diseases
One in every four people in Ireland are living with a neurological condition. That’s over 1.1 million people, which is costing our economy over €3 billion euro per year. Our system for diagnosing, treating and supporting people with neurological diseases is inadequate.
FutureNeuro is the SFI Research Centre for Chronic and Rare Neurological Diseases. In partnership with the national clinical network for neurology, our centre contributes to improving the health and health-care of people with neurological disease. Our unique approach is to explore multiple related aspects of brain disease across the themes of diagnostics, therapeutics and eHealth. We are passionate about patient-centred care, backed up by evidence-based research.
We have already made substantial scientific breakthroughs. Our research has been published in top journals including Nature Communications, Journal of Clinical Investigation and JAMA Neurology. We have achieved scientific breakthroughs and major advances in all three Thematic areas of the Centre.
