Neurovascular dysfunction in Neurological Disorders
Dr. Itender Singh is dedicated to understanding the role of cerebral blood vessels in the pathogenesis of neurological disorders. The long term goal is to develop therapeutic strategies and novel treatments based on these understanding.
Blood vessels in the brain provide nutrition, clear metabolic waste and facilitate neural activity that underlies human cognition. Dysfunctions of the neurovascular system disturb brain homeostasis and independently contribute to pathogenesis in neurological disorders. Active research interests in Dr. Itender Singh’s laboratory include neurovascular mechanisms of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), ischemic stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), germinal matrix hemorrhage (GMH) and flavivirus encephalitis. The lab is also engaged in developing translational biomarkers and therapeutic targets for AD, SAH and GMH.
