The Hamrah lab is interested in corneal immunology and neuroimmunology, with a focus on plasmacytoid dendritic cells. My project is aimed at understanding the role of these plasmacytoid dendritic cells in neuro-immune signaling. Of particular interest is determining the function of these cells in neurodegeneration and neuroregeneration. To characterize this signaling, I have been using methods such as RT-qPCR and flow cytometry. Additionally, I am interested in studying these cells in murine models of neuronal injury and neurodegeneration.
