research interests
I am interested in disease biomarker discovery. My goal is to identify new biomarkers for the clinical diagnostics of dementia. Dementia diagnosis is difficult, in particular during the early stages or when symptoms overlap across dementia subtypes. Alzheimer´s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia with high incidence in the elderly population. I have a particular interest in AD differential diagnosis and prognostics. For this, I am organizing a longitudinal cohort in the Aveiro region (the Av-cohort), which is essential for clinical biomarkerdiscovery. I am particularly interested on neuro inflammation and phosphorylation associated biomarkers.
