INTRODUCTION

GOAL: The goal of the Neuroinflammation research group is to understand inflammatory cell functions, especially those of microglia and astrocytes and mechanisms and mediators of inflammatory reactions in neurodegenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer’s disease and stroke. We use interdisciplinary approaches to find novel targets for modulation of neuroinflammation for the disease benefit.

 

RESEARCH INTERESTS: Get functional fingerprint of microglia-neuron crosstalk in health and disease Identify secreted mediators of this intercellular crosstalk, such as EVs Unveil how neuroinflammation is regulated at the level of non-conding RNAs Develop treatment strategies to modulate neuroinflammation for CNS benefit
