Chih Hung Lo, PhD


Chih Hung obtained his PhD at University of Minnesota where he investigated molecular mechanisms of inflammation (TNF receptor) and neurodegeneration (tau) and performed small molecule drug discovery. He went on to do a postdoctoral training at Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School where he used mouse genetics to study age-dependent neurodegeneration. Chih Hung's research interest focuses on neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration, specifically related to multiple sclerosis (MS) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). Since he joined the laboratory, his scientific focus has extended to using multiplexed immunofluorescence imaging to study MS pathology and applying iPSC technology to investigate the contribution of glial cells to MS pathogenesis.
