Curriculum Vitae

Current research includes the study of pathological changes which occur after brain damage and which lead to the development of epileptic seizures. The main focus here is the study of purinergic signaling (with the main emphasis on the ATP-gated P2X7 receptor).

Further research interest lies on the study of hyperexcitability as one of the causes which drive pathological changes in Alzheimer’s disease.
