The two main lines of Dr. Heutnik’s research are the genetics of neuro (degenerative) disorders and the mapping of common disorders in recent genetically isolated populations (for example late onset Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease). The work varies from linkage and positional cloning to functional studies using cell biological and biochemical approaches. For this purpose a combination of post-mortem brain material of patients, transgenic mouse models and inducible stable transfected neuronal cell lines are used. In these model systems the early stages of the process is mimicked.
