Translational Research in Neuropsychiatric Disorders (TREND)
Ali Jawaid, PhD
THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
PhD Ali Jawaid’s research is focused on interrelations between epigenetic and metabolic factors in the pathogenesis and heredity of brain disorders. The TREND laboratory is working towards responding a critical question of how environmental exposure and life experience, including injuries sustained in early childhood, dietary habits and inflammation history, affect susceptibility to neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders, regardless of whether such susceptibility is transferred to the offspring via brain-germline connection, and how this could be prevented.
