Investigating the impact of systemic immune responses in neuroimmune responses and neurodegeneration


School of Biomedical Sciences

Applications accepted all year round Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

We are using zebrafish and cre-lox mice as experimental models in our laboratory. We investigate how peripheral body injury affect infiltration of immune cells in the brain in zebrafish. We employ laparotomy and periodontitis in mice for this study. We use quantitative PCR, Western-blot, and AAV to study pathological genes and proteins. We will also use transparent brain method to investigate cell-cell interactions and neuronal paths. Interested students should have laboratory experiences in either mice or zebrafish. Candidate should have acquired laboratory skills in one or two of techniques we use. More importantly, candidate should be able to graduate with first class honor because of the requirement of Hong Kong PhD Scheme.
