Poster 131: Alexandria Margetts – Development of a Murine Stroke Model

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Dave Symons

Cardiovascular disease is a major contributor to declining neural health in the aging population. Research has pointed to the blood brain barrier as a target for treatment. This project focuses on developing a stroke model in mice that can be used alongside research into vessel function. This model will provide a means to study endothelial cell physiology at the blood brain barrier, as well as the way disease may affect this barrier.
