About Division of Neurodegeneration
To study degeneration of nerve cells in the central nervous system, use various disease models to identify new treatment strategies, develop stem cell based therapies for repair of injuries and insults of nervous tissue, study inflammatory mechanisms in disorders and injuries in the brain and spinal cord. These are the basis of the research and postgraduate education at our division.
Common to all our research is the focus on nerve cell injuries and development of new treatment strategies, at the cross-road of basic and applied research. Although most of the research we do is experimental laboratory work, several of the scientists at our division is also involved in clinical research projects.
The research and postgraduate research education is also a part of the R&D of the Geriatric University Clinic of the Karolinska University Hospital.
