Research Interests

Our lab has demonstrated the stress-protective effects of immunization with M. vaccae, as measured by prevention of inescapable stress (IS)-induced increases in anxiety, conditioned fear, escape deficits, and prevention of priming of hippocampal microglia. My goal is to determine the neural mechanism(s) associated to stress-buffering effects of M. vaccae.
