The research interests of our laboratory include investigating the role and regulation of immune and inflammatory mechanisms that protect against or predispose and individual to develop neurodegenerative disorders. Genetic and environmental contributions to lysosomal dysfunction and alterations in lipid signaling that dysregulate neuroimmune activity and trigger neuroinflammation are a main focus of investigation; as is the role of the gut-brain axis and chronic peripheral inflammation in the pathogenesis and progression of neurodegeneration.
