LEUKONET DEUTSCHLAND is a network of experts funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research that is dedicated to the research of leukodystrophies. It encompasses ten projects covering clinical research and basic research and two projects for the exchange and coordination of information.
Leukodystrophies are rare metabolic disorders of the nervous system that affect the white matter of the brain and spinal cord.
