Annakaisa Haapasalo Group (Molecular Neurodegeneration)

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...
