Human Brain Disease Modelling (Lehtonen lab)

Our research focuses on revealing the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurological diseases, especially Parkinson`s disease (PD). We utilize patient-derived brain cells in novel human-based models, including 3D culture systems and midbrain organoids, to more accurately mimic the diseased bra...

Latonen Lab - Cancer stress biology

We study the molecular, cellular and tissue mechanisms that contribute to the increased ability of cancer cells to tolerate stress. We focus on the molecular mechanisms behind the different capacities of cancer and neuronal cells to deal with protein and RNA aggregates, and the ability of cancer ...
