As a neurologist physician-scientist I focus my research on glia biology working with experimental models and human pathology in a synergistic way. I would like to understand the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms that lead to neurodegeneration, scar formation and unsatisfactory remyelination and work on strategies to foster repair in progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). My clinical interests are focused on several aspects of neuroinflammation and neurooncology with a particular emphasis on MS, glioma, neuroinfectious diseases and spinal cord injury.
