The goal of our research is to clarify how sleep and the immune system interact. Specifically we aim to determine under which conditions an autoimmune attack on neurons can occur. Our current focus is on the autoimmune sleep disorder narcolepsy, where our goal is to find the cause of the disease and to develop new treatment strategies. Our research will lead to valuable knowledge about not only narcolepsy, but autoimmunity targeting neurons in general.
