The overall goal of our Training Program is to advance the study of inflammation in disorders of the nervous system. This is accomplished by:

  • Bringing together researchers and their trainees working on neuroinflammation in multiple sclerosis (MS), nervous system injury, pain, and maternal infections affecting brain development leading to mental illness
  • An innovative Training Program to foster interdisciplinary training in research in basic cell and molecular studies, brain imaging, and population health in neuroinflammatory disorders
  • Providing a focal point for our trainees and researchers to exchange innovative ideas, share their new findings, and foster collaborations to speed the discovery process
