Research interests

The research of Dr van Eersel focuses on the pathology and mechanisms underlying common forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease and Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration. To study these disorders, Dr van Eersel utilises multiple techniques and methods including animal models, cell culture, molecular biology, histology and biochemistry. Most recently, Dr van Eersel has started to focus in on the protein Tau and how it can potentially be secreted from neurons within the brain and the role that endoplasmic reticulum stress may play in this process.
