About DGN

The German Neurological Society (DGN) was initially founded as the “Gesellschaft Deutscher Nervenärzte” in 1907 by Wilhelm Erb. In 1935, the society was dissolved by the Nazi government. The re-establishment of the society took place in 1950 by Heinrich Pette. The DGN is part of the Association of the Scientific Medical Societies in Germany (AWMF). The current Chairman is Prof. Christian Gerloff from Hamburg. In recent years the DGN has become a fast-growing society which represents more than 11,000 members.
