EUROTAU: Reflections on the Status Quo

​​​​​​​Editors: Werner Paulus and Johannes Attems

Acta Neuropathologica Communications is pleased to present a series of articles from the first EUROTAU meeting in Europe.

EUROTAU provides a forum for promoting ambitious, innovative, multi-national and multi-disciplinary collaborative research projects, that: i) combine experimental approaches from fundamental, pre-clinical and/or clinical with computational approaches; ii) perform network analyses in different Tauopathies to elucidate the underlying mechanisms that are common as well as those that are different between them, and iii) will add value to existing research by analyzing diseases across traditional clinical boundaries, thereby gaining deeper understanding of the patho-physiological mechanisms of these disorders.  

This collection of articles has not been sponsored and articles have undergone the journal’s standard peer-review process. The editors declare that they have no competing interests. This series is now closed.

    Since the discovery of the microtubule-associated protein Tau (MAPT) over 40 years ago, most studies have focused on Tau’s role in microtubule stability and regulation, as well as on the neuropathological cons...
