Understanding Neuroinflammation in Neurodegenerative Diseases and Nervous system Autoimmunity.
We have three research lines:
• Role of Structural Lipids and their Transporters in Alzheimer Disease and Neuropsychiatric Disorders
We study the role of lipids in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer. The metabolism of certain lipids could be changed. A danger signal?
• Autoimmune factors in Psychiatric/Neuropsychiatric Disorders
We study the occurrence of autoantibodies in subgroups of patients in neuropsychiatric disorders with the aim to improve the diagnosis for possible treatment with immunotherapy.
• Myasthenia gravis and related Neuromuscular Diseases
We study the role of autoimmune antibodies against specific targets at the neuromuscular junction. We currently aim to develop new strategies for immunosuppression by targeting long-living plasma cells.
