Our research group is focused on studying the mechanisms and drug targets in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, aiming to develop a disease-modifying therapy.

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...
