The Norwegian National Anti-Alzheimer’s disease Network (No-AD), opened in 2020, warmly welcomes a new NO-AD co-coordinator Dr. Asgeir Kobro-Flatmoen from the Kavli institute in Trondheim, Norway.
Asgeir Kobro-Flatmoen, newly appointed Co-leader of the Jebsen Centre for Alzheimer’s disease at the Kavli institute in Trondheim, is now joining Evandro F. Fang (UiO) as co-coordinator for the NO-AD network. Kobro-Flatmoen does research on the neuroanatomy and cell-biology of Alzheimer’s disease, and discovered the unique vulnerability for a specific subset of neurons in entorhinal cortex layer II to the accumulation of amyloid-beta, namely the reelin-expressing projection neurons. His current work is centered on understanding how processes in these neurons may set off the disease-cascade.
As co-founding co-coordinator, Prof. Menno Witter has just retired from NTNU (See our recent news). We thank Prof. Witter for his life-long and instrumental contribution to neuroscience and his pioneering work in establishing the NO-AD network. Prof. Witter will be serving as Coordinator Emeritus to continually guide and support the NO-AD events and activities.
The NO-AD network is supported by the Nasjonalforeningen.
