Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder of the central nervous system (CNS) and the most frequent neurological disease in young adults, leading to irreversible clinical deficits and premature retirement. On the one hand, my group focuses on the contribution of B cells and autoantibodies to the immunopathology of MS. Next to understanding the mechanisms of B cell-driven disease, we aim to develop novel therapeutic options and biomarkers for patients with MS. On the other hand, we are concerned with developing strategies to promote neuroregeneration and remyelination in the CNS. In addition, my group is concerned with studying the involvement of the enteric nervous system (ENS), dietary factors and food antigens in MS.
