Laboratory activity
The Lab is specialized in studying gene expression from skin in inflammatory nerve or degenerative disorders, in quantifying skin denervation by histology and studying axon reflex reaction. The other activities include assessement of nerve-muscle disorders by clinical neurophysiology (large and small nerve fibers), muscle whole body MRI studies, and clinometric measures of muscle function.

Research interests

  • Gene expression from skin in inflammatory nerves (CIDP and Guillain-Barré syndrome).
  • Quantitative skin denervation by histology.
  • Clinical neurophysiology.
  • New tools to assess muscle function.
