In recent years, the tight collaboration on several levels between Koç University’s Medical School and NDAL brought these institutions closer together and resulted in their merging at KUTTAM (Koç University Translational Medicine Research Center). Today with its huge number of neurodegenerative diseases samples and patient data, with its international collaborations and large scale projects, NDAL deserves to be in a professional clinical setting. Koç University’s School of Medicine, a rising star in the Turkish education system attracts the top students of Turkey. With its recently established KUTTAM and its young and dynamic Neurology Department, the University is a great opportunity for NDAL's sustainability to further grow and thrive. We are grateful to all people who were instrumental in this transfer.
