Oscar Stassen’s research focuses on astrocytes. These are cells that play an important role in the communication between different cell types in the brain and are considered as integrators od information in the brain. A hallmark protein of astrocytes is the cytoskeletal protein Glial Fibrillary Acedic Protein (GFAP). Stassen describes the role of GFAP in astrocyte biology in health and disease and from a cell-biological, molecular biological and biophysical perspective.
