High-Throughput “3D” Profiling of Single T-cells in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Award Ben Barres Early Career Acceleration Awards (Cycle 1)
Focus Area Neurodegeneration

Project Description

While immune cells have been implicated in pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases, we know relatively little about T-cell composition, their antigen specificity or functional status in these disorders. Dr. Jiang will leverage systems immunology tools that her lab developed to profile single T-cells that infiltrate into the brain during neurodegeneration. These experiments will be informative for understanding the role of the immune system in neurodegeneration and for developing immune-based detection and treatment approaches.
