SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

The brain is an amazing assembly capable of doing remarkable jobs. During the normal course of ageing and neuropathology, the functions of this organ are affected. My interests are to understand the mechanisms of neuronal loss in the adult brain and the development of strategies to minimize/rescue neuronal loss.
