My scientific curiosity is directed at structural and molecular determinants of brain function in health and disease. I am particularly invested in applying and combining molecular and functional imaging methods to understand mechanisms of pathology in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinsonian Disorders and Alzheimer’s disease. I am also highly engaged in the translation of research in my field from basic to clinical science and the deployment of more advanced clinical standards of neuroimaging. For example, I coordinate national and international groups for the harmonization of imaging standards and organize a symposium on translational molecular imaging in neurodegeneration (MINC symposium).
As a leader of this group, I am dedicated to empowering young scientists to find their vocation and to achieve their full professional potential.
