Our research

The research in our laboratory is focused on the molecular pathways regulated by the serine/threonine kinase, glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3), and their implications in pathological disorders. In recent years GSK-3 is emerged as a drug discovery target involved in diabetes, neurodegenerative and affective disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease, and bipolar disorder. Our aim is to identify mechanisms linking hyperactivity of GSK-3 with these pathologies.
