About Professor Harald Neumann

The major objective of our research is to understand the involvement of inflammation in neuronal injury as well as neuronal protection and regeneration. Furthermore, adult hematopoietic-derived stem and precursor cells will be applied as tool for cell and gene therapy of neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases.
