Welcome to the Neurodiagnostics Laboratory (DIAL) at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin. We work on diagnostic outcomes for autoimmune neurologinflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases like multiple sclerosis or neuromyelitis optica.

To understand disease processes in these often-enigmatic diseases it is quintessential to understand why and how patients develop symptoms. Vice versa, we need to understand how we can measure and analyze problems our patients suffer from most effectively. Only the best possible diagnostic outcome measures will guarantee valid clinical trial results as well as correct and timely diagnosis in clinical care. Furthermore, by understanding what patients suffer from, we can derive information about the underlying disease etiology and approaches for future therapies.

DIAL is a joint institution of the Clinical Neuroimmunology Group at the NeuroCure Clinical Research Center and the Neuroimmunology Service at the Experimental and Clinical Research Center, Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and Max-Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine.
