Tom is honored to receive the NIH Directors New Innovator Award to support the lab's work on the role of the vasculature in brain plasticity. The lab is currently hiring at the postdoctoral level for this project, details can be found here. You can read more about the award here and here.

New publication in collaboration with the Mulkey lab

08.18.20

Beautiful work led by Colin Cleary in the Mulkey lab reveals that P2Y2 receptors in the retrotrapezoid nucleus are key determinants of respiratory chemoreception. More on this work can be found here.

The lab receives its first R01 from the NIA!

08.18.20

We are delighted to have been awarded an R01 from the National Institute on Aging to study the role of pericytes in the control of brain blood flow, and the disruption of this control in Alzheimer's disease.

Liuruimin (Amy) Xiang joins the lab

05.20.20

We are happy to be joined by Amy Xiang as a rotating PIN graduate student! Amy is interested in electrophysiological approaches and will spend her rotation learning to patch native smooth muscle and endothelial cells from the brain.

New publication in Current Topics in Membranes

05.08.20

We are delighted to have the first publication from the lab enter print. In this chapter, we focus on the ion channel genes expressed by brain capillary endothelial cells and explore their potential functional implications in the regulation of brain blood flow. It can be accessed here.

Ashwini Hariharan joins the lab

02.17.20

We are very excited to be joined by Ashwini Hariharan from the University of Otego in New Zealand. Ashwini's expertise covers neurovascular coupling, endothelial biology, and Alzheimer's disease.

Welcome Ashwini!

Two students join the lab

12.10.19

We are excited to be joined by Colin Robertson, a rotating PIN graduate student who will learn in vivo multiphoton imaging, and Joshua Choi, a JHU student who plans to focus on patch clamp electrophysiology.

 

Welcome Colin and Joshua!
