The research group perform translational neurogenetic research of frontotemporal dementia and early onset dementia on well-characterized patient collections. In addition to our gene-discovery research lines, we invest in translation of novel genetic findings into diagnostic and prognostic relevant genotype-phenotype correlations.

The research group studies gene mutations associated with Charcot-Marie-Tooth neuropathies to understand the delicate balance between peripheral nerve homeostasis and degeneration. From genetics we proceed with functional characterisation of specific mutations in cell and animal models, and we explore therapeutic approaches..

The research group studies hereditary neuropathies which form a group of neuromuscular disorders with tremendous clinical and genetic heterogeneity.
