About Roger Olsson

Research
My laboratory is developing small molecule chemical tools and therapeutics for Neurodegenerative diseases, (e.g., Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s). A part of this research is focused on Nuclear Receptors ligands, e.g., the sex hormone receptors, estrogen receptor β (ERβ) and the androgen receptor (AR). The discovery of novel compounds with different pharmacodynamic properties might lead to safer and more efficient drugs. This research is performed in collaboration with biotech and an academic research consortium based at Lund University, MultiPark.
