Research interests

I am very interested in the role of the immune system in neurodegenerative diseases, especially Alzheimer’s disease, and how to strategically take advantaged of it for therapeutic treatments.

My current work is focused on optimizing immunotherapy for treatment of Alzheimer’s disease using antibody engineering to modulate the affinity between Fc-receptors and amyloid beta specific antibodies, and also shed light on the role of Fc-receptors as contributors to neuroinflammation.

Of past research, I have been working on establishing and characterizing a model for Alzheimer’s disease using adeno-associated virus technology for gene manipulation in APP/PS1 mice. This project was carried out at the pharmaceutical company H. Lundbeck A/S, Denmark, as part of my master’s thesis project.
