Project overview

Understanding the dynamics and phenotype of microglia during development is a fundamental aspect when trying to elucidate the contribution of these cells to normal and abnormal neurodevelopment. In this project we are looking at defining the key mechanisms controlling the microglial population during critical neurodevelopment windows, using in depth phenotypic of pots-mortem human samples as well as rodent models.
