Christine Hsieh, PhD, BS

Associate Professor

Dr. Hsieh is a molecular and cellular immunologist. She investigates innate immune responses in neuroinflammation and tissue injury using several approaches, including molecular, cellular, histological, transcriptomic, and behaviorial study approaches. Her lab uses an established animal model of traumatic brain injury (TBI) to determine microglia and macrophage phenotypes at the single cell level after TBI. Her lab is also interested in identifying targets to treat TBI, and performing preclinical in vivo studies to test drugs to improve functional outcomes after TBI.
