About the Speaker(s)

I have pioneered in field of cholinergic neurotransmission, nicotinic acetylcholine receptors as well as in the development of amyloid PET imaging, introducing the multi-tracer PET concept , evaluating drug mechanism of action and visualising reactive astrogliosis and tau pathology in patients with Alzheimer´s disease (AD) and dementia disorders. My frontline research findings have been published in leading journals (500+ publications, H-index 79) and I have been PI for more than 15 clinical PET trials and received several prizes and rewards.

I am leading a research team with a major focus on developing early diagnostic biomarkers and new drug targets in AD and other neurodegenerative proteinopathies.
