Mr Emre Fertan
I have a background in behavioural neuroscience, during which I studied the behavioural and neuropathological changes in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease. My current work focuses on characterising cellular (iPSC and organoid systems), synaptosome, and animal models of neurodegenerative diseases using super-resolution microscopy techniques.
