I study the differentiation of microglia from hPSCs and use these cells for more complex in vitro modeling of human disease by combining these cells in co-culture with neurons and astrocytes.  Particularly, I am interested in modeling neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and neurodevelopmental diseases such as Rett Syndrome.  Phenotypes that I am very interested in include complement activation and synaptic pruning.
