Karlijn Doorn carries out research into microglial cells, cells that play an important role in the active immune response in the brain. Insight into microglial cells can contribute to our knowledge of processes such as protein accumulation and cell death, and consequently of the susceptibility of certain areas of the brain to Parkinson’s disease.
