Despite several remarkable achievements and advancements in technology, the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative diseases remains not fully understood. This call aims to improve the understanding of complex and multifactorial pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases through multi-OMICS and Big Data approaches designed to find new drug targets and biomarkers for the development of personalised treatment approaches.


  • Using the potential from existing animal and cellular models and cohorts, including available data and biomaterial, for conducting large-scale OMICS approaches to unravel the interplay and interactions of molecules from multiple molecular levels driving disease pathogenesis.
  • Better understanding the complex and multi-factorial mechanisms of disease onset and progression as well as the corresponding influencing factors.
  • Translating the findings from Big Data analysis and multi-OMICS approaches to existing animal and cellular models, thereby enhancing the potential of these models.
  • Identification of new drug targets or novel starting points for pharmacological interventions and prevention.
  • Sharpening the current understanding of disease definition, thus leading to enhanced sub-classification and better patient stratification.

Doel subsidieoproep

The aim of the call is to establish a number of ambitious, innovative, multi-disciplinary and multi-national collaborative research projects that seek to improve the understanding of the complex and multifactorial pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases by applying multi-OMICs and Big Data approaches in order to generate useful information for the diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and drug discovery of neurodegenerative diseases.
