Numerous genome-wide association studies (GWAS) show a strong, but poorly understood neuroinflammatory component to most neurological diseases. This project will leverage such GWAS data from several neurological and inflammatory conditions to determine the relationships between immune system genes and underlying neurological pathologies and in addition to understanding the genetic influence of aging-dependent inflammatory changes
