Young Blood for Old Brains

Wednesday, March 31, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Speaker

Tony Wyss-Coray, Ph.D.
Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Stanford University

Summary

Dr. Wyss-Coray's laboratory studies the role of immune and injury responses in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease. We seek to understand how immune responses and injury pathways may modulate neurodegeneration and age-related changes in the brain. We study these pathways in vivo and in cell culture using a number of genetic and proteomic tools. We have been particularly interested in the TGF-beta signaling pathway as a major regulator of biological processes and we are developing genetic and pharmacological agents to manipulate this pathway.
