Title: Transcriptomic analysis of different microglia phenotypes in health and disease
Project: My projects aims to give a better understanding of the immune processes taking place in the aging or diseased brain. Our group isolates microglia from human post-mortem tissue. Next, we compare the transcriptome of microglia from Alzheimer patients to donors without brain diseases. My main interest is the bioinformatic analyses that provide insight into signal transduction pathways and potential Alzheimer pathology markers.
