Assistant Professor, Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Aging and Aging Related Disease
What I do
I am starting my research laboratory in the Knoebel Institute for Healthy Aging. My research vision is to understand how the adaptive immune system regulates neuronal function in normal aging and following traumatic brain injury. I will explore how altered immune responses can regulate age-and trauma-related cognitive and sensorimotor deficits in a sex-dependent manner.
