Welcome to the Zimmer Neuroimaging Laboratory


The Zimmer Lab is interested in understating neuron-to-glia communication in Alzheimer’s disease, aiming to decipher precise mechanisms and to develop innovative therapeutic strategies. The laboratory comprehends a multidisciplinary team conducting translational research. We collaborate with an extensive network of scientists worldwide and we are committed to scientific training in the field of neuroimaging, pharmacology and neurochemistry.

We welcome graduate students and postdocs interested in work with Alzheimer’s disease or related brain proteinopathies. If you have interest please contact us.
