SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

As a physician who wants to become a neurologist I want to do scientific work from a clinical point of view. I am especially interested in (neuronal) cell death both as a consequence of ischemic and neurodegenerative processes. I want to understand what causes these cell deaths to happen and want to transfer this knowledge into the clinic in order to improve patients´ treatment.
