About us

How do neurons survive and stay healthy in the human aging brain, and how is this process affected in Alzheimer's disease and related brain diseases?
We address this problem by focusing on the discovery and functional study of novel disease genes, variants and pathways implicated in inherited adult-onset neurological and degenerative brain disorders.
Our research group is affiliated to the Department of Biomolecular Medicine at Ghent University and the Center for Medical Genetics at Ghent University Hospital.
