Danuta Jantas, PhD
Position
Adjunct

My research interests are mainly focused on cellular models of neurodegeneration and neuroprotection. In addition to searching for intracellular mechanisms of action of clinically used drugs, I am also interested in investigating new synthetic or natural compounds with neuroprotective or anticancer activities.
