Research summary
Investigating SARM1 interactions with glial and neuroimmune cells

SARM1 is an enzymatic protein that functions as a key mediator of axon degeneration. In the DiAntonio lab, I am interested in studying whether and how the presence of glial and neuroimmune cells influences SARM1 activity. Currently, I am investigating this question using mouse embryonic dorsal root ganglion neurons co-cultured with mouse or rat glial or neuroimmune cells.
