The University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) with its locations in Kiel and Lübeck is one of the largest medical care centers in Europe. In collaboration with the faculty of medicine at Kiel University, the Kiel site hosts many international research projects including the German Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation”.
The Department of Neurology (PI: Walter Maetzler) is the main coordinating partner and academic co-lead of IDEA-FAST. In addition, the Department of Internal Medicie I, the Institute for General Medicine and the clinical trials unit (ZKS) Kiel is involved in IDEA-FAST.
Digital measures for symptoms and movement in neurogeriatrics
‘Hi my name is Walter. I am a Professor of Neurogeriatrics at Kiel University and lead the neurogeriatric ward at UKSH. My speciality is movement assessment in Parkinson’s Disease and I am very motivated to find out how we can monitor sleep disturbances in these patients with modern technology. My role in IDEA-FAST is to support Fai (see Newcastle site) to coordinate the consortium and to lead the clinical validation study starting in 2022.’
‘Hi, I am Kirsten. I am a neuroscientist with a special interest in Parkinson’s Disease and how we can increase the quality of life in affected patients using research findings. My role in IDEA-FAST is to help coordinate interactions across different sites and project partners to ensure that both studies will run smoothly. ’
