In the Neuroinflammation & Endogenous Repair Lab, we are interested in understanding the biological mechanisms that regulate central nervous system inflammation. Neuroinflammation is a common feature of nervous system disorders, our goal is to manipulate this response to promote repair following spinal cord and brain injury.
