About Professor Maiken Nedergaard
The Nedergaard group established at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) is primarily interested in the function of glial cells in the CNS, and the involvement of astrocytes in several neurological diseases.
The Nedergaard group have established techniques to allow macroscopic fluorescent optical imaging of perivascular glymphatic transport that will be utilised in order to determine whether SVD results from pathological suppression of perivascular glymphatic fluid transport.
Professor Maiken Nedergaard and her research group works closely with the Fondation Leducq Transatlantic Network of Excellence - Perivascular Spaces in Small Vessel Disease research consortium as one of the collaborators.
