Research interests

  • Biology of oligodendrocytes, the myelin forming cells of the CNS, in health and disease.
  • The regulation of oligodendrocyte differentiation in vitro.
  • The oligodendroglia cytoskeleton and the microtubule associated protein tau in oligodendrocytes during normal development and pathological situations.

  • Molecular signals that are involved in the regulation of death and survival.
  • Stress responses in oligodendrocytes (oxidative stress, proteasomal stress) and the role of stress-induced proteins.
  • Molecular mechanisms underlying protein aggregate formation as observed in neurodegenerative diseases with glial pathology, such as MSA, PSP and CBD.
