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 glial 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 immune system to help develop new treatments for multiple sclerosis, stroke, brain tumors, and many other illnesses?
