Work with us

What role do glia cells play in autoimmunity? How do different cells behave during neuroinflammation? 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, Alzheimer’s disease, Stroke, Brain tumors and many other illnesses?

Interested in these questions? Come and work with us in an interdisciplinary environment as we strive to elucidate the underlying mechanisms of autoimmunity and neuroinflammation. Apply state of the art experimental techniques including advanced immunologic procedures, bulk and single-cell RNA-sequencing, in-vivo imaging, real-time bioenergetic analysis, targeted and untargeted molecular imaging, mass spectrometry and more. Use in-vitro platforms, animal models and human samples to study these questions, and generate new insights leading toward a greater understanding of neuroimmunology.
