Opportunities for research in our team.
These do change with new discoveries (see Publications), but broadly, our work focuses on:
6. Role of the innate immune system (microglia - brain macrophages) in regulating autonomic neurons in the cardiorespiratory system.
7. When is the sympathetic nervous system activated to increase blood pressure in people. Two current studies focus on heart failure and pregnancy.
Technical approaches range from cellular and molecular biology to electrophysiology and human studies.
