Personal profile

Research interests

My research interest focuses on the research of molecular mechanisms underlying cerebrovascular diseases, aging processes, and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. I investigated the role of statins and various natural products, including linalool, as potential neuroprotective agents in neurodegenerative diseases. Lately, my focus has shifted towards delving into mitochondrial metabolism and its link to inflammation in the context of neurodegenerative diseases, particularly the generation and characterization of human microglia derived from induced pluripotent stem cells of Parkinson's disease patients. I am greatly interested in expanding my research in understanding neuroinflammation as a key factor in neurodegenerative diseases.
