Christine Hsieh, PhD, BS

Associate Professor

I am a basic science and pre-clinical researcher interested in molecular and cellular immunology and inflammation. I investigate innate immune responses in neuroinflammation and tissue injury using molecular, cellular, histological, transcriptomic, and behaviorial study approaches. My lab uses an established animal model of traumatic brain injury (TBI) to better understand the cellular immune response after TBI. We test approaches to modulate the immune response to improve functional outcomes after TBI.
