Research Interests:

We employ mouse models and in vitro systems to study the pathophysiology of human multiple sclerosis (MS).  We take a “systems biology” approach (e.g., focused gene expression profiling, proteomics methods) to identifying novel regulators and targets for therapy of central nervous system (CNS) inflammatory disease.  A primary goal is to identify genes encoding factors (e.g., cytokines, enzymes, chemoattractant receptors, etc.) that enable or promote trafficking, function or survival of key effector cells involved in CNS inflammation and/or myelin repair.  We also seek to validate the therapeutic potential of promising candidate drugs and targets via the use of appropriate genetic, immunologic and pharmacologic approaches.
