Research interests

I am interested in the roles microglia and infiltrating monocytes play during neurodegeneration. My research involves the use of biolistic transfection of gene constructs into organotypic slices. I use this assay to study how microglia and infiltrating monocytes affect the rate of neurodegeneration with the goal of therapeutically targeting these cells.
