New HIH research group

Dr. Deborah Kronenberg-Versteeg has started her research group “Glial Cell Biology” in the Department of Cellular Neurology headed by Prof. Mathias Jucker.

Dr. Kronenberg-Versteeg devotes her research to the function of glial cells and their role in the development of diseases.

Glial cells are highly abundant in the mammalian brain, yet many questions regarding their development, function, and involvement in disease remain unanswered. Glial cells are essential for brain homeostasis and it is now well-appreciated that both neurons and glia are fundamentally involved in neurodegenerative diseases. However, their specific role in disease development remains incomplete.
