The Eisele lab focuses on age-related amyloid diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and cardiac transthyretin amyloidosis. The team here has made seminal contributions to the characterization of protein aggregates that cause these diseases using a wide range of biochemical, molecular, and cell biological methods. By delineating the molecular mechanism of these diseases, they identify novel biomarkers and therapeutic targets. The Eisele lab collaborates closely with the clinical team, and is dedicated to translating basic research findings into benefits for patients.
