Details research group Neurosciences (NEURO)


Expertise of the research group :


The Neuroscience research group focuses on fundamental, translational and clinical research to gain insight in the (sub-)cellular mechanisms and pathogenetic processes of neurological disorders of the central or peripheral nervous system. These diseases include disorders related to neuronal development, disorders related to the enteric nervous system and neurodegenerative disorders. A 'bench-to-bedside' approach is used in which clinically relevant questions are investigated in cell culture models and validated in animal models, patients or patient material, in order to achieve better diagnosis, therapy and treatment. Finally, there is a strong focus on the development and application of biomedical imaging and other biophysical techniques to enable groundbreaking insights in this field.
