Our research focuses on the intersection between neuroscience and infection. The lab team work collectively to understand the impact of infection on the brain, not just clinically, but also at an immunological, virologic, genetic, and neuroimaging level. 

Our projects are cross-cutting and use a bi-directional and translational model of research. The diiferent areas include: Blood-Brain Barrier Model; Murine Model; Clinical Biomarkers; Neuroimaging; Neuro-cognitive Sequelae; and Outcome Measure and Prediction.
