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

Neurobiology of disease

The main goal of our research is to understand the mechanisms that lead to neurodegenerative diseases and to identify novel therapeutic approaches for them. We are interested in the effects of environmental agents (such as air pollution and viral infections) and lifestyle factors on brain health...
