Areas of clinical expertise 

research interests:

multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and related neuroimmunological disorders

Cellular and molecular neuroimmunology lab. Projects range from fundamental studies of immune regulation and mechanisms of human autoimmune diseases; principles of immune-neural interaction; mesenchymal stem cell biology and glial cell biology in context of neuroinflammation and therapeutics; as well  as neuroimmunology of special populations including paediatric onset demyelinating disease. Additional important area of reserach relates to roles as Scientific Director, Clinical Research Unit (CRU) and  Director, Experimental Therapeutics Program (ETP) at the MNI, with major emphasis on studies of mechanism of action of experimental therapies and biomarker development in MS and other immune-mediated and neurological diseases. The international reputation of these programs is edified by our established biorepository emphasizing highest-quality samples rigorously obtained from well-characterized patients and controls, as we'll as professional approach of assay-development and validation for human immune monitoring, and their thoughtful implementation in cross-sectional, longitudinal, and therapeutic trial cohorts
