Research Summary

Stroke is a common and devastating disorder but still there is no effective therapy for the majority of patients. Because delayed mechanisms of ischemic brain damage such as neuroinflammation, apoptosis, and neurogenesis, rely on gene expression, we investigate gene regulation in the context of cerebral ischemia. Genetic and pharmacological tools are combined with the long-term aim to improve stroke therapy.
