Adult stem cell plasticity, neuronal stem cell research

Our goal is to develop and test animal models for the autologous transplantation of adult bone marrow stem cells (BMSCs) or their in vitro treated derivatives into the adult central nervous system with the eventual aim of treating disorders in animal models of selected neurological disorders.

Regulation of neuronal gene expression

Our goal is to investigate the mechanisms of the regulation of the gene expression of selected neuronal genes under physiological, pathophysiological and experimental conditions in vivo and in vitro.

Pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease

Our goal is to investigate the role(s) of microglia in the development of this disease.
