My lab is interested in the role of the immune system in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Specifically, we seek to understand the ways in which the brain’s resident immune cells, microglia, contribute to the neuroinflammatory processes driving neurodegeneration. We believe microglia from men and women respond differently in AD, contributing to the sex differences in disease onset and progression, and we’re working on identifying the reasons for these differences. We are also interested in how these cells communicate with the circulating peripheral immune system, and the ways in which these interactions affect disease progression.

One size does not fit all. For many patients, standard drug treatment might not work or even trigger life-threatening adverse reactions. There is an urgent clinical need to provide tailored therapy for patients. Our laboratory focuses on applying pharmaco-omics tools (i.e. pharmacogenomics, proteomics and metabolomics) to identify both genetic and non-genetic factors contributing to the interindividual variability related to disease risks and drug therapies. Our research is expected to improve the efficacy and safety of drugs by identifying biomarkers that can predict individual drug responses, revealing novel drug targets and translating these findings into clinical precision pharmacotherapy.
