The Luxembourg Pillow fight is organized in partnership by:
The National Centre for Excellence in Research on Parkinson’s Disease (NCER-PD)
The NCER-PD research program represents a joint effort between 4 partners in Luxembourg that unite their expertise in Parkinson’s disease to find ways to earlier diagnose and better treat the disease. This Luxembourg Parkinson’s Study has been funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche (FNR) since Spring 2015.
The LCSB is a biomedical research centre of the University of Luxembourg. It is accelerating biomedical research by closing the link between systems biology and medical research. Collaboration between biologists, medical doctors, computer scientists, physicists, engineers and mathematicians is offering new insights in complex systems like cells, organs, and organisms. These insights are essential for understanding principal mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and for developing new tools in diagnostics and therapy.
Neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease and description of diseases as networks are at the focus of LCSB’s research.
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbours, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad.
Founded by Paul P. Harris 100 years ago, the Rotary Foundation is involved in many sustainable projects.
To encourage biomedical research, the Luxembourg’s Rotary clubs, in collaboration with their Rotary friends in Briey and Salernes, and the Rotary Foundation in the United States, which is celebrating its centenary this year, launched the Project "Hope 4 Parkinson".
