Short introduction to Johan Jakobsson's research


We are interested in how gene expression is regulated in the brain and how this process influence neurodegenerative diseases, psychiatric disorders and brain tumors. Our current focus is to study the role of epigenetic mechanisms and microRNAs. Our technical expertise include lentiviral vectors, transgenic mice and stem cells cultures.
