Dr Lewandowski's research

Dr Lewandowski's group studies vascular mechanisms in ALS neurodegeneration and dementia in FTD and AD to find novel therapeutic applications and clinical biomarkers. The group looks how blood vessel dysfunction and vascular remodelling leads to increased severity of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and FTD using bioinformatics, in-vivo rodent models and clinical samples. The results lead to novel off-label drug applications to therapy and biomarkers in neurodegeneration including ALS, stroke and Multiple Sclerosis.
