Welcome at the Chair of Vascular Neurology and Dementia at the University of Duisburg-Essen!

In view of the continued ageing of our society, cerebral blood flow disturbances and dementias will gain increased importance in German health care systems in the near future. For this reason the Medical Faculty of the University of Duisburg-Essen has established at the Department of Neurology the Chair of Vascular Neurology and Dementia, which intensively investigates related diseases and evaluates new therapeutic strategies.

The chair consists of experimental research groups, which are located in the hospital's research building, the "Forschungsgebäude der konservativen Medizin", and a clinical group, which pursues patient-oriented research in the Department of Neurology. The chair possesses staff, which is fully devoted to research, as well as staff, which is also active in patient care.

I appreciate a lot meeting you on our website.

Sincerely Yours, Prof. Dirk M. Hermann
