Background and activities

PhD student in the Translational and regenerative neuromedicine group, at the institute of Neuromedicine and movementscience NTNU. My research project is financed by the Medical faculty, and relates to the development of personalized cell-based therapies for patients with Parkinson's disease. 


Despite vigorous research effort we still have an incomplete understanding of the exact and underlying mechanisms of Parkinson's disease development. Through the use of new scientific tools like tailored microfluidics chips, multielectrode arrays (MEAs) and engineered neural networks from reprogrammed human cells one can simulate aspects of Parkinson's disease in vitro. Hopefully these simulations will uncover aspects of the disease important for the development of future therapeutic strategies.
