SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS AND GOALS:

My scientific interest is in the understanding of molecular mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease. I would like to work on the Reelin signaling pathway which is involved in Alzheimer’s disease as well as in the synaptic plasticity. Unraveling of this pathway in great details might correlate the amyloid deposition with tau hyperphosphorylation and ApoE4 polymorphism.
