Elizabeth Delery, Ph.D

Clinical/Research Interests

 Dr. Delery’s primary research area is neuroimmunology, specifically how the blood-CSF barrier responds to various immunological challenges. The Delery lab’s goal is identifying and elucidating the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways leading to neuroinflammaging, with particular emphasis on the blood-CSF barrier, the choroid plexus. Our lab studies traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other causes of neuroinflammation (like aging & HIV infection) in-vitro using cell culture and ex-vivo using Rhesus macaque tissue samples. Students in this lab will learn aseptic technique, cell culture, model TBIs in-vitro, perform immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, western blots, ELISAs and PCRs.
