I am interested in the biological changes associated with neurodegeneration; how does neurodegeneration develop in the brain and how does it affect brain function? Further understanding of these changes can hopefully contribute to better identification, treatment and prevention of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease.
In my PhD-project I am researching biomarkers for Alzheimer's disease, biological changes associated with the disease that can contribute to better and earlier diagnostics.
