Welcome to a Center of Exellence

The Center - At a glance

Uppsala Berzelii Technology Centre for Neurodiagnostics has been operational since 1st of January 2007. The overall goal is to enable early diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Alzheimer’s disease and chronic pain, by identifying and validating relevant biomarkers. Eventually, such biomarkers can also aid in the development of new and better therapies.

What makes this Centre unique in an international perspective is the close connection and proximity between on one hand clinical research groups with access to large sets of biomaterial (public sector) and on the other technology-driven research groups (academia) tailoring new assays for the clinicians. In addition, several industrial partners (industry) bring in valuable resources and knowledge, and are well suited for bringing forward new products based on the findings from the Centre.
