Our laboratory conducts research on the Genetics and Neuroimmunology of the reciprocal interactions between immune and neural stem cells for translation in neurodegeneration and repair, with the goal of regeneration using neuroimmunology principles (Regenerative Neuroimmunology). J Neuroimmunol. 2019 Jun 15;331:1-3
We focus on the effects of inflammation on neurons and neural stem cells and their CNS repair mechanisms that are critical to find the next generation therapies for patients with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PMS) and neurodegenerative diseases associated with neuroinflammation. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2019 Apr 30;116(18):8646-8648.
We use an integrative approach including neuroimmunological, developmental, genetics and cell biology strategies.
