Jens Velde Andersen

PhD Student

I joined the Neuro Metabolism group, at the Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, in 2014 as a scholarship student and I am currently doing my PhD in the same group. Through my research, I try to elucidate how molecular and cellular changes in brain metabolism are related to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. I am particularly interested in interdisciplinary and collaborative projects.

My main research interests include:

  • Relationship between brain energy metabolism and neurodegenerative diseases
  • Neurotransmitter recycling and metabolism
  • Brain metabolism of branched chain amino acids
