Peripheral immune perturbation is a common denominator across diverse CNS diseases/conditions and many environmental exposures.  Yet, how the peripheral immune compartment regulates the neuroimmune mechanisms driving neuropathology in disease and in response to environmental exposures is poorly understood.

As such, the three major areas of our research focuses on the role role of peripheral mechanisms in:

  1. Air Pollution & Alzheimer’s Disease

2. Paraquat & Parkinson’s Disease

3. Chlorpyrifos & Gulf War Illness
