First N-RENNT Symposium on Neuroinfectiology 2014

First N-RENNT Symposium on Neuroinfectiology 2014

Hannover (Germany), March 31st-April 1st, 2014


The Ministry of Science of Lower Saxony in Germany is funding the new research network  R-RENNT with 5.4 million €, starting October 1st, 2013.

N-RENNT brings together a unique consortium of leading experts and institutions, to join forces with an unparalleled expertise and knowledge in the integrated fields of neuroscience and infectious diseases installing a ‘One Health – One Medicine’ approach and integrating medical and veterinary research in Lower-Saxony.

This will establish a highly skilled, globally unique and versatile expertise center that will address challenges posed by present and emerging infectious agents that target the central nervous system and cause largely unresolved neurological disorders.

N-RENNT comprises 17 principal investigators from universities and other academic institutions of the three cities Hannover, Göttingen and Braunschweig.

At the heart of N-RENNT will be the new Center for Infection Medicine and Zoonoses Research at the University of Veterinary Medicine in Hannover, which will be inaugurated in 2014. Prof. Albert Osterhaus, an internationally renowned virologist, will become the founding director of this new center.   

The main mission of N-RENNT is to establish a neuroinfectiology-network in Lower Saxony as an internationally renowned center of excellence in this rapidly emerging interdisciplinary field. Besides creating a highly active network, scientific training of graduate students is a major task of N-RENNT.
