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.
