Website and scientific content

The MDSGene website and database have been developed by members of the Institute of Neurogenetics at the University of Lübeck, Germany. The content of MDSGene was collected in a collaborative effort by several international movement disorder research groups under supervision of the two coordinating centers at the University of Lübeck and at the University of Toronto. MDSGene gratefully acknowledges financial support from the  International Parkinson Disease and Movement Disorder Society and from the Possehl foundation and received intramural funds from the University of Lübeck.
