Ageing and Neurodegenerative Disease

Members of this research group contribute to the cross-faculty research theme on Ageing.

This research group performs basic research on mechanisms of healthy ageing using the model organism Drosophila melanogaster and research into a range of age-related diseases. This is aimed at finding improved biomarkers for diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, as well as drug discovery and clinical trials for these diseases, and preclinical research into schizophrenia.
