Prof. Dr.

Nektarios Tavernarakis

Main areas of research: Ageing, Apoptosis, Autophagy, Cell death, Learning & memory, Mitochondria, Necrosis, Neurodegeneration, Protein homeostasis, Senescence, Stress

Ageing is universally associated with marked decrease of neuronal function and higher susceptibility to neurodegeneration. In human populations, this is manifested as an ever-increasing prevalence of devastating neurodegenerative conditions, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, stroke, several ataxias, and other types of dementia. Nektarios Tavernarakis and his team aim to contribute towards battling age-associated pathologies. Their research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of necrotic cell death and neurodegeneration, the interplay between cellular metabolism and ageing, the mechanisms of sensory transduction and integration by the nervous system, and the development of novel genetic tools for biomedical research.
