NAD+ and Mitophagy in Brain Ageing and Neurodegenerative Disorders

Dr. Evandro F. Fang established his independent laboratory at The University of Oslo, Norway investigating the molecular mechanisms of one of the most fundamental and fascinating topics in current biology: human ageing. His laboratory ( is focusing on the molecular mechanisms of how cells clear their damaged and aged mitochondria, a process termed “mitophagy”, as well as the roles of mitophagy in Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
