Michael Heneka has been named as the new  director of the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB).

Heneka was appointed as director in June 2021, and took up the position at the start of 2022.

Heneka succeeds Rudi Balling, the founding director of the LCSB since 2009.

Heneka is a professor in neurosciences and currently leads his own research group in Neuroinflammation, conducting projects to understand the molecular mechanisms of inflammatory regulation in a variety of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. 

He will now support the development of medical education at the University of Luxembourg, building on his previous experience as director of the Department of Neurodegenerative Disease at the Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen (DZNE) and Professor of Clinical Neurology at the University of Bonn.

The LCSB team has established a centre of neuroscience research in Luxembourg and internationally. The LCSB aims to become one of the leading European institutes in neuroscience over the next decade.
