About

I am heading a group, funded by SNSF Ambizione Grant, which is dedicated to understanding the astrocyte regenerative mechanisms and astrocyte-neuron communication in neuroinflammatory conditions, such as Neuromyelitis Optica, MOG-associated disease and Multiple Sclerosis. We utilize various imaging techniques and different animal models to advance the development of new biomarkers and neuroprotective strategies in neuroinflammation. As clinician scientist, also affiliated with the Department of Neurology at USZ, my passion is the translation of preclinical neuroscience into clinical application in the field of Neuroimmunology (see also: https://www.usz.ch/team/marina-herwerth/)
