Former Future Research Leaders
The main focus in our lab is to understand how neurons and glia get their specific properties and functions. A topic that touches several basic questions in neuroscience and biology in general.
Protein Aggregation and Amyloid Pathogenicity. Protein misfolding and aggregation are implicated in a wide range of increasingly prevalent human diseases ranging from dementia to diabetes.
Neural mechanisms behind sickness and reward. Inflammatory symptoms such as fever, pain, loss of appetite and reduced well-being are major problems for persons affected by inflammatory diseases.
Climate research at the interface of science, politics and democracy. Anthropogenic climate change is one of the most complex and politically contested environmental issues of our times. Scientifically it concerns the climatic effects of human induced greenhouse gas (GHG) emission to the atmosphere.
Luminescent Conjugated Polymers - Illuminating the Dark Matters of Biology and Pathology. The focus of our resarch is to use luminescent conjugated polymers (LCPs) to study disease related biological events, such as aggregation of proteins.
Arc deposition methods for the design of new materials. How far can we push the design and tailoring of materials properties for new applications? This ultimately depends on the control of atomic constituents while composing
and structuring a material.
How medical treatment, the use of new technology as well as experience of pain and illness can form our ways of engaging with others and the world and inform and form our self-understandings.
Alzheimer's cultures, gender & the challenges of the posthumanities.
