Annual Meeting – Confirmed Speakers Elena Kozlova

Elena Kozlova

Prof. dr.  Elena N. Kozlova is leading the Regenerative Neurobiology lab in the Department of Neuroscience at Uppsala University. Before that, she was a Postdoctoral researcher at the Karolinska institutet (Sweden) and National Institute for Medical Research (UK). Prof. Kozlova has published 58 original publications and 8 review articles and 2 book chapters. She was a coordinator of EU-sponsored project within EuroNanoMed II, partner in EU-sponsored project within Joint Program in Neurodegenerative Disease (JPND), member of management committee COST Action Biomaterials and advanced physical techniques for regenerative cardiology and neurology.

Prof. Kozlova’s research is focused on developing novel treatment strategies for spinal cord injury and disease, specifically neurodegenerative disorders, as well as in exploring the impact of extreme gravity alterations on the properties of neural stem cells. The research includes human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived neural stem cells, as well as the application of mesoporous nanoparticles for therapeutic purposes.
