Brain drainage via the meningeal lymphatics
Our research aims to understand how immunological pathways and interactions contribute to the development of neurodegenerative, neurodevelopmental, mental, and behavioral disorders. In particular, we are investigating mechanisms that regulate inflammatory cytokine production in the central nervous system in response to tissue injury, infection, and neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental disorder onset.
