Research focus

Studying Parkinson’s disease (PD) pathogenesis using human stem-cell derived neurons (embryonic stem cells, neuronal stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs)) with the aim of determining disease mechanisms and discovering novel therapeutic targets.

 

Current project:

Applying large-scale mass spectrometry to investigate proteomic and post-translational changes in human iPSC-derived neurons from patients with familial PD or with isogenic mutations introduced by genome editing.

Experience:

  • 1.5-year project in Dr. Richard Wade-Martin's group at the Oxford Parkinson's Disease Centre, University of Oxford, UK, during PhD.

  • 1-year pregraduate research project at Dr. Ole Isacson's group at the Neuroregeneration Institute, Harvard Medical School, USA.

  • Instructor in human anatomy and histology, University of Southern Denmark and teacher in neurophysiology for neurophysiology assistants, SDE College.

 

 

Education:

  • Basic clinical training for physicians at the Emergency Department and the Psychiatry Department, Odense University Hospital, August 2018.

  • PhD, Department of Neurobiology Research, Institute of Molecular Medicine, University of Southern Denmark, august 2017.

  • Cand. med., Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southern Denmark, June 2013.

  • B.Sc.med., Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Southern Denmark, January 2010.
