We focus on basic and translational research aiming at novel strategies for brain repair and regeneration by modulating the function of glial cells. We utilize a translational trans-species approach by comparing two animal models (zebrafish and mouse) for identifying predictive biomarkers and novel therapeutic approaches applicable to human brain injury. We use a combination of in vivo cell imaging methods and OMICS analysis to understand processes underlying regeneration in zebrafish and implement them for repair in the mammalian brain. Read more...
