Matthew R. Brier, MD, PhD
The Brier lab uses neuroimaging to study multiple sclerosis (MS). Advances in disease modifying therapies allow for the reduction of inflammatory relapses in patients with MS. However, despite these incredible treatments, many patients still experience progressive disability accumulation associated with neurodegeneration. We are principally interested in how this progressive degenerative pathology emerges in the context of seemingly well treated relapsing MS.
Mingjie Li, MD, PhD
The Li lab is developing new vectors for neurological applications. The goal of the Viral Vectors Core is to assist Washington University neuroscience researchers in the design and production of various kinds of vectors.
Naresha Saligrama, PhD
The focus of the Saligrama lab is on T cell repertoire in autoimmunity, T cell specificity and function in autoimmunity and systems analysis of immune system in neurological disorders.
Gregory Wu, MD, PhD
The main goal of the Wu lab's research is to define the antigen presentation requirements during inflammation within the central nervous system (CNS). Several different antigen-presenting cells (APCs) participate in CD4 T cell-mediated immunity.
