Short description

Within the unit we conduct research that involves the autonomic nervous system. We utilize specific disease models to try to find answers to questions that relate to both pharmacology and physiology. The goal of a large part of our research is to understand how certain physiological processes are altered during disease. For this purpose we use an array of pharmacological tools. The overall aim for most of our projects is to identify biological targets for new drug therapies.
