Anne Remes

I have a broad expertise in clinical and translational research as well as molecular genetics in early onset dementias especially in frontotemporal dementia (FTD). My most important scientific observations have been the first line identification of C9orf72 expansion as the major genetic cause of FTD and obtaining pluripotent stem cells from familial Alzheimer’s disease.

I have research groups in Universities of Oulu and Eastern Finland. We aim to identify and characterize novel diagnostic tools, imaging methods (including functional MRI), biomarkers and etiological factors as well as the underlying pathogenesis of FTD using patient derived pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC). Our research focuses also on psychiatric manifestations of FTD, cognitive decline in psychiatric disorders and in ethical and patient/caregiver aspects of early onset dementias. I am the founder and a partner of Finnish FTD Research Network (FinFTD) - "a network for researchers and research groups investigating or interested in frontotemporal lobar degeneration, including frontotemporal dementia (FTD), and related disorders".
