Research/Clinical Interest
Title
Immunology of brain homeostasis and disease
Description
The laboratory investigates brain immunology and homeostasis in health and disease by using multidisciplinary approaches of neurobiology and immunology, with a focus on intercellular signal transduction. The ultimate goal of the laboratory’s research is to discover new biological concepts that can be harnessed to develop therapeutic strategies against psychiatry and neurological disorders.
