Research Description:

As a neuroimmunologist for over twenty years, I have focused my research program on inflammatory diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) that are important for public health, including multiple sclerosis, stroke, and CNS Tuberculosis. My goal is to improve strategies for treating CNS inflammation, block neurodegeneration and induce neuroregeneration. My laboratory contributed to knowledge regarding the role of immunity in CNS traumas, infections, and autoimmune diseases.

We are focusing on the following questions:

  • How the immune system contributes to damage and healing after stroke and how this knowledge could be translated to better cures?
  • What are the mechanisms for the bidirectional communication between the immune system and the central nervous systems?
  • How do brain cells respond to infection-induced inflammation in CNS Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection (CNSTB)?
  • How to design new approaches for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) therapy?

Research Key Words:

Neuroimmunology, Neuroinflammatory Pathways, Neurodegenerative Diseases, Immune Reactivity in CNS
