Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal cord injury, Malignant gliomas, Neuroinflammation My research projects have been guided by 3 diseases of the central nervous
system (CNS): MS, spinal cord injury (SCI) and brain tumors (malignant gliomas). MS and SCI provide my research
program with diseases of chronic and acute neuroinflammation, respectively. In contrast, malignant gliomas present
a disease of immunosuppression, whereby the cancer cells neutralize the activity of leukocytes that infiltrate into these
tumors. Collectively, my studies of these 3 diseases are aimed at understanding, controlling and tipping the balance of
neuroinflammation towards one of neuroprotection and regeneration from CNS insults.
