Areas of expertise
I am a clinical neurologist specializing in the care of neuroimmunolgical patients, especially multiple sclerosis at the Turku University Hospital. I lead a research group focusing on neuroinflammation, and I act as the first Professor of Neuroimmunology at the University of Turku. Our group uses PET imaging to investigate the pathology of MS, and we focus particularly on the pathological aspects of progressive MS.
My main interest is in pathological mechanisms of progressive MS. We apply PET imaging to study neuroinflammation. We aim is to develop treatments for neuroimmunological diseases where no treatment is yet available, such as progressive MS.
