Biochemistry Special Seminar | Associate Professor Anna Erlandsson, Uppsala University, Sweden

The astroglial response to pathogenic proteins

Knowledge about the cellular mechanisms behind the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease is limited.

Decades of research have focused on neuronal abnormalities, but recently more attention has been given to the glial cells.

The aim with our research is to clarify the role of astrocytes, the major glial cell type, in Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease by studying their involvement in accumulation and spreading of pathogenic proteins.
