SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

I am interested in combining neurosciences, immunology, and molecular biology to develop new therapeutic approaches. Thereby, neurosciences can incorporate different aspects which involve the molecular level on one hand and the whole organism with its central nervous system on the other.
