Biography

My research goal is to identify detrimental and repair-promoting signaling pathways resulting from neuroinflammation and glial activation then modulate them in such a way as to achieve a beneficial outcome for those suffering with neurological diseases. My specific area of interest is encephalitis. A major line of my current research is focused on multiple sclerosis, which I have been researching since 2003. We are particularly interested in uncovering how upper-respiratory viral infection, exacerbates symptoms of this disease. Another emerging aspect of our research is focused on uncovering detrimental vs. repair promoting responses that occur during viral encephalitis.
