Molecular Neuroscience

The Laboratory for Molecular Neuroscience investigates molecular mechanisms involved in physiological processes such as cell volume regulation, gliovascular signaling, maintenance of the blood-brain-barrier integrity and role of the brain extracellular matrix in normal brain function.

About the group

The laboratory aims at using the knowledge from the physiology to unravel the molecular basis for cell death and edema development in stroke and other neurological conditions and explore the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders.

Long term goals are to identify new mechanisms of disease and new molecular targets for the treatment of neurological diseases.
