Our group is focused on the study of the role of immune receptors (CD300f and CD200R1) in the regulation of microglia/macrophage phenotype in acute nervous system injuries (TBI, SCI and sciatic nerve injury), and under chronic neuroinflammatory conditions such as ageing or psychiatric disorders (MDD and anxiety). I am also a lecturer at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Barcelona.
