Organisation profile:

We are interested in generating a quantitative understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease pathogenicity. Our research is based on the premise that getting a better mechanistic understanding of the function of the molecules involved in familial Alzheimer’s disease (FAD) will offer critical insights into the molecular basis of the disease and open new research avenues leading to innovative and safe strategies to tackle the disease in the clinic. 

Keywords:Alzheimer’s disease
