03-02-15 Joe wins 2015 New Vision Award
Joe had a very successful conference last week, and was awarded the 2015 New Vision Award at the Charleston Conference on Alzheimer’s disease. This is a highly selective award (with money!) which involves a first round of selections to attend the conference and then a study section-like discussion of the remaining entries at the conference. Joe’s proposal was selected unanimously.

I moved to the States for graduate school in 1999. My thesis work focused on the role of oxidative injury in spinal cord injury and the protective effects of membrane repair on oxidative injury and mitochondria function. After I finished my PhD project, I decided to switch my research into neurodegeneration. I joined the Wyss-Coray's lab in June of 2004 to pursue postdoctoral training and enjoy Californian sunshine. I am interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of TGF-β signaling in brain injury and neurodegeneration. My current projects focus on (1) bioluminescence imaging of TGF-β signaling in the brain and (2) the role of TGF-β signaling in neurodegeneration and autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
