Our Research Goals
Our goal is to provide a unified theory of how immune mechanisms and the glial network drive neurologic disorders and autoimmunity and to translate these laboratory discoveries into new therapies
What role do glia cells play in autoimmunity? How does cellular metabolism regulate immune potential? Do lipids shape the immune response? How do peripheral immune cells, glial cells and neurons communicate? Do you want to discover how to harness the power of the body’s own immune system to help develop new treatments for multiple sclerosis, stroke, brain tumors and many other illnesses?
