Laboratory for Experimental Brain Research

Stroke research is conducted at the Laboratory for Experimental Brain Research at Lund University. The research is translational and aims at identifying mechanisms of cell death and processes of functional recovery after brain injury. We employ advanced technologies in cell, tissue culture and animal models and clinical studies in our effort to understand stroke and to develop new therapies.

Professor Tadeusz Wieloch and Dr. Karsten Ruscher received grants from the Swedish Research Council for their research on the mechanisms of recovery after stroke.

-We are particularly happy that Karsten Ruscher received the grant from the Research Council for the first time, a certificate of the high quality of his research, says Professor Wieloch.

A new LabExpBr paper has been accepted for publication entitled "Levodopa treatment improves functional recovery after experimental stroke" by Ruscher, Kuric and Wieloch. Stroke, in press.

Tadeusz Wieloch recieves a grant of 500 000 swedish krona, for studies of mechanisms enhancing functional recovery after stroke

Using 2-photon laser scanning microscopy (2PLSM) researchers at LabExpBr publish, for the first time, live images of the dynamic changes of the endoplasmic reticulum in the neurons of the brain of the living mouse. The article is launched as feature article in the Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolis.

In a recent article in the journal Brain researchers at the LabExpBr together with American collegues describe a finding that potentially may become a stroke treatment.
