Gene Therapy and the Nervous System
The group directs its research towards possible gene therapy strategies for autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders, especially those associated with ageing. This type of disorder affects the central nervous system (CNS), one of the current challenges in relation to their treatment. There are no effective treatments to cure these illnesses. They are complex and there is the added element of not being able to easily access the CNS and treat them with classic drugs.
