Irina Alafuzoff – Neuropathology
Research in my group focuses on various degenerative processes and diseases of the human brain.
We use a range of techniques for studying tissues, for instance histology, immunohistochemistry, morphometry and tissue microarray strategy.I am convinced that to understand aging related disease processes observed in human brain, studies have to be carried out on human tissue.
In addition, physiological general systemic events that influence the changes seen in the brain should be incorporated into the interpretation of the results. Thus my research approach can be described as being overall systemic, incorporating all fields of medicine.
