Research summary
Investigating SARM1 interactions with glial and neuroimmune cells

SARM1 is known to be a crucial executioner of axon degeneration. Regulation of SARM1 enzymatic function is a key determinant of whether an axon will go on to degenerate. In the DiAntonio lab, I am interested in identifying links between glial and neuroimmune cells and SARM1-mediated axon degeneration.
