Maiken Nedergaard, M.D., DMSc University of Rochester
Principal Investigatorwork Box 645 601 Elmwood Ave Rochester NY 14642 office: KMRB 1-9915B p (585) 273-2868 f (585) 276-2298 firstname.lastname@example.org Research Focus: The basic biology of glial cells in the CNS and the role of astrocytes in several neurological diseases, including stroke, spinal cord injury, epilepsy, tremor, and ALS. Research is aimed at defining new strategies for the treatment of neurological diseases that target astrocytic dysfunction.
Rashid Deane, B.Sc., Ph.D. University of Rochester
Research Professorwork Box 670 Rochester NY email@example.com Research Focus: The role of the neurovascular unit (blood-brain barrier, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons) in controlling the brain’s microenvironment in health and disease. This includes clearance mechanisms of molecules (e.g., tau), from the aging and injured brain, and the impact of toxicants and metals in the development of cognitive decline and diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Understanding how the aging brain distributes and eliminates molecules may lead to novel therapeutic approaches for the diagnosis and prevention of AD, and thus minimize the burden of the pending AD tsunami.

Jeffrey Iliff, Ph.D. University of Rochester
Adjunct Assistant Professorwork Rochester NY email@example.com Research Focus: Exploration of how the brain's support cells, called glia, contribute to maintaining the proper environment for neuronal function and how their failure in conditions like vascular dementia, stroke and traumatic brain injury leads to neurodegeneration.
