TSPO and the Inflammatory Response

Research Areas

A researcher with the Translational Psychiatry Program, Barichello explores ways to apply research to clinical practice in treating mental disorders. Much of her work is performed in a lab, looking closely at cells and how they respond to “intruders,” such as bacteria and viruses that must be fought off by the immune mechanisms within the brain. “By studying inflammation and seeing the patterns in pre-clinical animal models of psychiatry,” she says, “we are finding ways to apply these insights to treating humans.”
