Lourenco Laboratory

About Us

Our research focuses on the understanding of molecular mechanisms of neurological diseases, with emphasis on Alzheimer’s disease and depression. Our long-term goal is to leverage our findings to promote translational advances in the development of new therapies and biomarkers for neurological disease. Our main goal is to understand the molecular mechanisms driving cognitive decline and mood impairments in neurological disease
