Research description

  • A Novel Biomarker to Assess Presence and Progression of Diabetic Neuropathy
    I investigate the biomarker potential of the neuronal cytoskeletal protein neurofilament light chain in diabetic neuropathy (DN). DN is one of the most common late complications of diabetes often diagnosed late in the disease process. A potential biomarker could provide a tool for early detection and follow-up of DN and possibly improve the care of people with DN.
