My research focuses on, but is not limited to, experimental and theoretical neuroscience, including studies in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetoencephalograpy (MEG), computational neuroscience, behavioral neuroscience, and, more recently, immunogenetic epidemiology. During the past few years, I have led a new line of research in studying the role of Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) health and disease, including healthy brain aging, Gulf War illness, and associations with dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in epidemiologic studies. More recently, I have been examining in silico the association of HLA with antigens of pathogens putatively involved in dementia, focusing on the human herpes virus and its possible association of HLA Class I and II alleles to the glycoproteins of 9 Human Herpes Viruses. Finally, we have been investigating in silico the relations between HLA alleles and SARS-CoV-2 in an effort to contribute to the design of vaccines to be effective in multiple variants.
