Gene Expression and epigenetic changes in brain disorders

Neuroscience Research Unit Seminaron the topic "Gene Expression and epigenetic changes in brain disorders".

Associate Pofessor and Research Group leader Maja Jagodic from Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm visited us this day. She will gave an introductary talk and stayed through our discussions for the rest of the day. Jagodic's Research Group Focus on epigenetic origins and mechanisms in neuroinflammation with main emphasis on multiple sclerosis. For more information, see
