About me



Research description

My research focuses on regenerative mechanisms in Alzheimer disease. I'm especially interested in how astrocytes influence inflammation, plasticity and neurogenesis in the hippocampus. The overall aim is finding new molecular targets for regenerative therapies that could benefit Alzheimer patients.

I am supported by a postdoctoral fellowship from the Olle Engkvist Byggmästare Foundation and a clinical research internship (forskar-AT) from Karolinska University Hospital and Karolinksa Institutet .
