Network and Partner Centres
Our network exists on the basis of a mutual understanding of the importance of cooperative collaboration rather than divisive competition for effective and efficient advancement of medical research into adrenal-related disorders. This is particularly important for research involving rare disorders for which there is usually limited access to patient data and materials and in which multidisciplinary approaches are required that can benefit from multiple pockets of required technological, scientific and medical expertise that cannot easily all be reproduced at any one single centre. Support of the current proposal will therefore not only strengthen the national and international scientific profile of the University of Dresden, but will also serve as a model for reinforcing collaborative links to other centres and in doing so will strengthen those other centres as part of cooperative networks. Such synergistic collaboration and cooperation promise more efficient allocation and utilisation of resources in terms of both funding and accruals of patients, data and materials for high quality evidence-based medical research.
PARTNER CENTERSRadboud Adrenal Centre (http://www.umcn.nl/Research/Departments/Radboud Adrenal Centre)
The Radboud Adrenal Centre (RAC) serve as an centre of expertise in The Netherlands for the diagnosis and treatment of adrenal diseases, both in children and adults, and to promote top level research on adrenal diseases, especially pheochromocytoma/paraganglioma, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, primary aldosteronism and hyper- and hypocortisolism. Members of the Dresden Adrenal Clinical Research Unit interact closely with those at the RAC.
