Aims and research areas
We investigate molecular pathomechanisms to define biomarkers to identify persons-at-risk and thus improving prevention or at least early detection to facilitate early treatment to improve the prognosis of the patients and/or their children. To reach this goal we use genetic and epigenetic data as well as gene expression and protein profiles. Those data will be combined with behavioural and imaging data from collaboration partners.
A technique we apply in our lab is the generation of neuronal cell models via induced-pluripotent stem cells, which we reprogram from skin punches from our patients. Thereby, we will model gene-environment-development interaction in the cell culture dish to gain insight for novel prevention- and therapy options.
