It is now clear that immune cells, classically known for their role in fighting infection, play key roles in brain development, homeostasis, and disease. Our lab is interested in better understanding the interactions between immune cells and the brain, and the role of these communication circuits in shaping brain function in physiology, aging and disease. Our approach encompasses scRNA-seq and other technologies of genomics, classical tools of immunology, neuroscience, and everything else that could help us identify the mechanisms of brain-immune communication.
Post-doctoral position: Immune- brain communication mechanisms
Position: A 2 year, ANR-funded post-doctoral position (with a possibility of extension for up to 4y total) is open starting November 2022-January 2023 to study novel pathways of immune-brain interactions using tools of neuroscience, […]
Immune activity at the brain borders
Immune cells modulate CNS activities in physiology, but peripheral immune cells are rarely found in direct contact with the neural tissue. Instead, the immune cells are thought to affect the brain remotely and indirectly, […]
Microglia are extremely specialized immune cells, which reside in the CNS and play key roles in its development, homeostasis and disease. Such specialization is imposed by the peculiar environment the microglia have to live […]
