Main Focus

My lab conducts post-mortem histological and immunohistochemical qualitative and quantitative morphological studies of psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases. I have a particular interest in the neuropathology of the following diseases: schizophrenia, frontotemporal lobar degeneration with or without motor neuron disease, motor neuron disease (MND-TDP, MND-FUS, MND-UPS), cases with C9ORF72 mutation, tauopathies (progressive supranuclear palsy, corticobasal degeneration, argyrophilic grain disease, Pick’s disease), multiple system atrophy, neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation, triplet repeat disease and Alzheimer's disease.

I am the coordinator of BrainNet Europe II and was involved in the implementation of the Munich brain bank for neuropsychiatric diseases in February 2014.

Furthermore, I have an interest in the specialized dissection of human brain tissue, the ethics of brain banking and the development of gold standards for neuropathological tissue characterization. 

Offering PhD positions in 2024: To be determined.
