Keywords: T cell development and function; immune aging; systemic inflammation; signal transduction; gene expression. 

Research in our laboratory focuses on the effects of age-related chronic systemic inflammation in the manifestation of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. In particular, we are interested in understanding the role of immune cells in the brain, the gut and in the traditional peripheral compartments in association with the gut-microbiota in the development of age-related chronic systemic inflammation, cellular senescence and neurodegeneration.
