Nitschke Lab

We research brain glycogen metabolism and related neurodegenerative diseases.

We aim to advance mechanistic understanding and to probe appropriate therapeutic strategies, including state-of-the-art gene therapy.

Placeholder We investigate factors that determine glycogen structure and function.
Placeholder We develop new tools to solve scientific questions around glycogen storage diseases
Placeholder We develop novel Gene Therapy approaches to treat glycogen-associated neurodegenerative diseases
