Research Summary

The Sansing lab studies the responses of the immune system after intracerebral hemorrhage, a devastating type of stroke that occurs when a blood vessel within the brain ruptures. Once a hemorrhage occurs, microglia, the resident immune cells of the brain, become activated. In addition, blood leukocytes, including neutrophils, macrophages, and T cells, enter into the brain. Each cell contributes to brain injury and recovery in different ways. Our work aims to discover which responses are injurious and should be inhibited, and which responses contribute to recovery and should be augmented. The overall goal of our research is to identify new therapeutic targets that modulate immune responses in the brain to maximize recovery.
