David Bernson

Researcher at Chemical Biology

David Bernson is a Post-doc at the division of Chemical Biology. His primary research focus is on the misfolding and aggregation of proteins into amyloid fibrils, and their involvement in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Biophysical techniques such as fluorescence, polarization spectroscopy and confocal microscopy are combined with live cell studies to investigate toxic properties of amyloid aggregates, as well as how this is influenced by presence of other molecules. David is also teaching basic chemistry at bachelor’s level.
