Professor Doron Merkler is currently Associate Professor in the Department of Pathology and Immunology, University and University Hospitals of Geneva, Switzerland (https://www.unige.ch/medecine/pati/en/groupes/908merkler/m/do/). His research interests are focused on the study of the pathogenic and protective functions of cytotoxic T cells operating in the central nervous system in the context of autoimmune diseases and viral CNS infections. In recent years his research efforts provided novel insights into the molecular underpinnings involved in the immunopathology of multiple sclerosis and autoimmune encephalitis. Due to his medical background and his specialization in neuropathology and immunology, his studies frequently benefit from both novel experimental model systems as well as similar investigations on human brain samples from diseased patients.
