Research Interests

The role of the innate immune response in Alzheimer’s disease

Research in the Ulland Lab is focused on gaining a deeper understanding of the mechanisms, including metabolic and transcriptional changes, which govern the innate immune response to Alzheimer’s disease. Ultimately the goal of our research is to inform the design of new therapeutic approaches to Alzheimer’s disease.
