Welcome to Lux-GIANT

The Luxembourg-German-Indian Alliance on Neurodegenerative diseases and Therapeutics.

Our collaborative effort brings together the expertise of clinicians and scientists from Luxembourg, Germany and India to address the pressing challenges of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Parkinson’s disease.

About Lux-GIANT

We are at the Forefront of Scientific Pursuits

Neurodegenerative diseases, particularly Parkinson’s disease, present significant burdens on individuals, families and healthcare systems worldwide. Understanding the intricate molecular mechanisms underlying these conditions is essential for developing effective therapeutics and improving patient outcomes. Lux-GIANT is committed to unraveling these complexities through cutting-edge research and collaborative initiatives.

Join the Lux-GIANT Movement

The continuous efforts in harnessing sequencing approaches to catalogue genetic variations from populations that have been hitherto underrepresented in genomic research have started unraveling genetic discoveries that have not been previously captured in European populations. The lack of diversity, particularly in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, has been recognized. To address this, a trilateral network of Luxembourg-German-Indian Alliance on Neurodegenerative diseases and Therapeutics (Lux-GIANT) was founded in 2018 to pursue trans-ethnic genomic studies in neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.


At Lux-GIANT, our mission is to accelerate Parkinson's disease research

Join us in our mission to make a meaningful difference in the fight against neurodegenerative diseases. Together, we can unlock new insights, develop innovative therapies, and ultimately improve the lives of millions affected by these devastating conditions.
