My scientific interests are focused on neurodegenerative diseases and the improvement of treatment as well as diagnostics of neuronal diseases. The fact that the whole functionality of every organ system is based on neuronal control is fascinating and challenging at the same time. It means that people suffering from neurodegeneration lose part of the control over their body by losing part of their nervous system. I am certain that it requires a lot of dedication to understand the conditions and processes that contribute to neuronal regulation and further pathologies. However, the treatment of neuronal diseases and especially neurodegeneration is still limited which drives my motivation to expand our knowledge in this field. I am excited to study neuroscience and especially neurodegeneration to understand the nervous system including all its complexity and contribute to the clarification of possible causes of disease, the improvement of diagnostics and development of therapies.
