My lab is interested in studying how host immune responses to neurotropic viruses can disrupt circuit structure, function and development.

Critical periods during brain development are regulated, in part, by certain immune molecules. How can viral infections, which may disrupt these immune molecule levels, affect brain development?

Recombinant adeno-associated viruses (rAAV) are used in gene therapy to treat monogenic disorders. How can we make viral vectors for human gene therapy in the central nervous system safer and more effective?

How does neuro-immune crosstalk regulate normal brain function and development in the absence of infection?
