Research Methods


We are using the following methods and techniques to study the mechanisms underlying aging and neurodegeneration:


  • Heterochronic Parabiosis
  • Whole genome-wide microarray analysis
  • Transgenic and knock-out mouse lines
  • Viral delivery and knockdown of genes in vivo and in vitro
  • Primary neurons, microglia and neuronal stem cells
  • Several behavioral paradigms to assess learning and memory
