The Neurodegeneration Unit at the Institute for Neuropathology, HHUD, focusses on:
1. neurobiology of chronic mental diseases like schizophrenia and the affective disorders
2. mechanisms of protein conformational diseases of the brain, particularly the prion disease and Alzheimer disease
3. mechanisms of regulation of biological function through stable conformers. Diagnostic and therapy of conformation regulation, particularly through protein ligands like (recombinant) antibodies.
