We are very happy to announce that Prof. Dr. Albena Jordanova is Keynote Speaker at the NeuroDoWo 2022 in Cologne. Prof. Jordanova works at the Vlaams Institute voor Biotechnologie in Antwerp, Belgium on heritable neurodegenerative diseases. Using bioinformatics methods, she was able to identify a mutation that causes Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease in 2012. She is now working on the identification of the functions of that gene using model organisms. In addition, her group aims to characterize further molecular genetic pathways underlying peripheral neuropathies and spastic paraplegias. Furthermore, they perfom neurogenetic studies in the Roma population and search for pathomechanistic commonalities in tRNA-synthases. We are very much looking forward to getting to know Prof. Jordanova and her research at the NeuroDoWo.
