I am currently working on characterization of a few novel ligands of the core cholinergic enzyme choline acetyltransferase as potential PET tracer for in vivo mapping of cholinergic networks in CNS. Another project concerns with the fine-tuning ACh signaling and its impact on innate immune responses in health and disease.
