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.

We welcome students interested in gaining research experience while at the university of Kentucky
