The goal of my laboratory is to understand how the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is important for brain function and behavior. We use a combination of cellular, molecular and genetic approaches to understand the mechanisms of BBB formation and function. We are interested in asking: What are the molecules in CNS vascular cells that form the BBB? What are the signaling mechanisms that regulate the formation of the BBB during development, and dynamic function throughout life? What are the molecular mechanisms that lead to BBB disruption during neurological disease?
