Biomarkers for Neurodegenerative Disorders

Research focus: pathogenesis of Alzheimer's research, particularly search for new biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases.

Biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases are needed for early diagnosis, follow-up of the progression of the disease and monitoring of therapeutic responses...

Biomedical Image Analysis

01.11.2016 -
Rapid advances in non-invasive neuroimaging methods have revolutionized the possibilities to study changes occurring in living brain across a variety of time-scales ranging from seconds to an entire life span. A large part of these advances can be attributed to the development of dedicated comput...

Our group is interested in the development of novel metabolic imaging using hyperpolarised MRI to gain a better understanding of potential biomarkers for metabolic diseases in brain and in other organs such as heart.

Annakaisa Haapasalo Group (Molecular Neurodegeneration)

01.06.2015 -
Our research focus lies in the genetic background and molecular mechanisms underpinning neurodegenerative diseases, especially frontotemporal dementia (FTD). To this end, we utilize a variety of in vitro and in vivo model systems and patient-derived cells, clinical samples and data. We are especi...
