SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:
My scientific interests lie in understanding pathological processes in degenerative diseases of the nervous system and the underlying molecular mechanisms. In this respect I am particularly interested in doing research on biochemical alterations, plaque formation and subsequent functional losses in diverse forms of disorders associated with dementia, foremost Alzheimer´s disease. By attaining a neuroscientific education I hope to gain the ability to work in both a clinical and a research setting, to serve as some sort of a translative joint between the two and to be able to contribute to advances in preventive, therapeutic, and curative approaches in neurodegenerative diseases.
