Om mig

  • I did my bachelor's in Animal physiology and Neuroscience as a combined
    program in France and Canada. I completed my master's in Neuroscience in
    France at the University of Montpellier. During my master's, I did my thesis
    work in the group of Pr.Agneta Nordberg.


  • The focus of my PhD is to trace Tau pathology in different dementia diseases
    grouped in the term of tauopathies. This term includes dementias such as
    Alzheimer´s disease and Fronto-Temporal dementia subtypes. Our
    translational group focuses mainly on Positron Emission Tomography technique
    (PET). ​The need is to find PET tracers which could be used in clinic for
    a clear diagnosis and differentiate between these dementias. For my PhD, I
    mainly work on the characterisation and understanding of the binding
    properties of newly designed PET tracers to determine their ability to
    target specifically Tau protein in pathological brains compared to healthy
    brains as well as other characteristic hallmarks such as inflammation and
    amyloid deposition. To do so, I perform binding assays studies on
    postmortem human brain tissue, immunostaining as well as a unique technique
    in our lab which is autoradiography with 100 um thick large frozen human
    brain sections.
