Research Interests
I am fascinated how learning and memory work, particularly what happens when they fail with age or in Alzheimer’s Disease.

There are many components to consider. Currently, I am involved in projects on extracellular vesicles, the impact of apolipoprotein E on their functions and the vulnerability of the endosomal-lysosomal system from which the extracellular vesicles derive. In addition, I manage the mouse colonies of a core facility. Therefore, I am equally interested in the connected animal behavior and their welfare.
