At this years Science Slam of the Medical School, University of Cologne, there were 8 great presentations by young researchers in the medical field. Verena Dzialas took 1st place (easily, we say) with her fantastic presentation on “Motor Reserve”. Julia Pfeil came in 3rd with a very impressive talk on “Amyloid, the protein that makes us forget”.
Kathrin Giehl received a PhD for her work entitled: Antagonizing Cognitive Impairment in Parkinson’s Disease: Neural & Behavioural Effects of Home-based Working Memory Training.
The work of Dr. Merle Hönig on “Resistance to Tau and Amyloid Pathology Facilitates Super-Aging” was selected as the Image of the Year 2020 by the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI).
Our group receives this prestigious international award for the second time after 2016, when the work of Dr. Gérard Bischof has been awarded.
Dr. Merle Hönig received the Brain Imaging Council Young Investigator Award 2020 at this year’s international conference of the Society for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) for her presentation “Resistance to Tau and Amyloid Pathology Facilitates Super-Aging”.
As part of her presentation, Dr. Hoenig presented the results of a series of PET images that show that older adults who maintained peak cognitive skills exhibited greater resistance to build-up of Alzheimer’s disease-typical proteinopathies, namely tau and amyloid pathology.
Merle Hoenig received a PhD
„The Spatial Evolution of Tau Pathology in Alzheimer’s Disease: Influence of Functional Connectivity and Education“
received the highest possible distinction!
The CNS – Hannelore Kohl Foundation supports the research project of Dr. Gérard Bischof on the relationship between repetitive brain trauma and chronic traumatic encephalopathy.
At the 14th International Conference on Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s Disease (ADPD) held in Lisbon, Portugal, March 26-31, 2019, Jochen Hammes is awarded a Junior Faculty Award for his work on PET in Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration and Alzheimer’s disease.
At the 14th International Conference on Alzheimer's & Parkinson's Disease (ADPD) held in Lisbon, Portugal, March 26-31, 2019, Merle Hönig is awarded a Junior Faculty Award for her work on tau and cognitive reserve in Alzheimer’s disease.
The medical faculty awards Kathrin Giehl an IPaK travel grant in the context of the ipid4all-application (DAAD) of the Albertus Magnus Graduate Center. She will attend the International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders held in October 2018 in Hong Kong in order to present her work on working memory training in Parkinson’s disease using fMRI.
