"Investigations of Alzheimer's disease pathology and potential therapeutics"
Our research is primarily focused on understanding the mechanisms responsible for the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. In our projects, we specifically focus on how the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease develops with particular emphasis on inflammatory signaling in the brain. These same projects are directed at identifying therapeutic targets for the treatment of AD.
