SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:
I would like to combine my medical education with the background of neurosciences in order to get a deeper insight in brain function. Knowledge of the basic mechanisms should be necessary for a better understanding of how and why the brain misfunctions in disease. By working at an interface between basic research and medical profession, I could contribute e.g. to the development of new therapies in neurological diseases.
