A principal goal of our research is to understand molecular mechanisms involved in pathogenesis of certain human neurodegenerative and metabolic diseases. Currently we focus on studies of normal function of several protein families and dysfunction of family members linked to human pathologies. Various experimental approaches ranging from in vitro macromolecule interactions to production and phenotypical characterisation of animal models are used in these studies.
