Francesca Gilli

Assistant Professor of Neurology

We are interested in understanding the neuroimmunology of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and its rodent models. Particularly, we are investigating the cellular and molecular pathways that contribute to neuroinflammation and central nervous system (CNS)-related tissue damage, aiming at understanding how inflammation contributes to neurodegeneration and disability progression in MS. The overall intention of this work is to identify new therapeutic targets or strategies that will improve our ability to manage progressive MS as well as other neurodegenerative diseases.
