Dr. Brandt was at the CCC-Neuro laboratory in November 2018 to kick off the joint NICJAGER study. In the NeuroInflammatory Conditions in JApan and GERmany registry study we are prospectively collecting clinical and imaging data as well as biosamples to study pathology an phenotypes in neuromyelitis optica, multiple sclerosis and related disorders.

Data collection will be performed using RedCap hosted by the Berlin Institute of Health. Image analysis will be performed at the CCC-Neuro laboratory using analysis pipeline from Berlin and Chiba University.
