Meet Eslam Mehina - University of Victoria
New Student Member of the MCS!
"I am very excited to be included in the Microcirculation Society and am looking forward to the meeting this September in Vancouver.
My project aims to decipher the role of microglia in responding to damaged microvessels in the cortex, and in contributing to their repair and ultimate fate after hemorrhagic insults. Diabetic patients are at increased risk of suffering from cerebrovascular disease, so my work is particularly focused on whether microglial dynamics and responses are disturbed in mice with a model of insulin-dependent diabetes. In particular, I am investigating the role of various inflammatory molecules, such as interferons alpha and gamma, in modulating these responses and affecting vascular repair following insult in the diabetic brain."
