Research Interests:
Hilmar Bading studies synapse-to-nucleus communication pathways that control genomic events critical for adaptive responses in the nervous system, in particular acquired neuroprotection and long-term memory. His work focuses on the role of nuclear calcium signaling in these processes and how the dialogue between synapses and the nucleus is disturbed by the stimulation of extrasynaptic NMDA receptors that initiates excitotoxicity leading to neurodegenerative diseases. He is developing new neuroprotective therapies. (
