Prevention and intervention

The goal is to develop preventive measures early in development as well as therapeutic interventions for conditions that are still reversible to support healthy brain ageing in subjects at risk. This goal is based on experimental analyses of the underlying mechanisms via a translational approach in humans, non-human primates, and rodents. We will identify pharmacological interventions that may reverse altered stress sensitivity and vasoreactivity in rodents as a base for preventive or therapeutic human studies.
