The research at Neuronal Survival Unit, Lund University, Sweden is focused on pathogenetic mechanisms and pharmacological treatment in cell and animal models of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. We also study cell replacement therapy with stem cells in attempts to repair brains in animal models of Parkinson’s diseases. The group’s mission is to understand neurodegenerative diseases and develop new therapies that are of benefit to patients and their caregivers.
On April 18-20 the Functional Genomics of Parkinson's Disease conference takes place in Tübingen, Germany. Nesu member Elodie Angot will be presenting a talk at the conference with the title: Neurobiology of cell transplantation therapy in Parkinson’s disease.
