We are focused on identifying and understanding molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration in the mammalian brain.
We study the circadian clock system and how it regulates oxidative stress, neuroinflammation, and neurodegeneration.
Areas of current interest include:
Circadian clocks in Alzheimer's Disease pathogenesis
Regulation of glial function and neuroinflammation by the circadian clock
Interplay between aging, the circadian clock, and neurodegeneration
Novel therapeutic targets for Alzheimer's Disease
