The German Research Foundation (DFG) is funding a new clinical research unit at FAU that will investigate the interaction between the nervous and immune systems in inflammatory and degenerative diseases, also know as the “gut-brain axis”. The interdisciplinary team will receive a total of 6 million euros of funding over the coming four years. 

The idea of treating certain conditions with electrical currents is not new. However, the results that can be achieved by combining physical and medical expertise with modern medical engineering are impressive. You only have to look at the research carried out by Dr. Andreas Rowald and his team at the Chair of Digital Health at FAU. They are developing personalised treatments and ways to make living with their condition easier for patients with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke-induced damage or spinal cord injuries.
