Dr. Evelyn Tiffany-Castiglioni

Our lab carries out research on the neurotoxicity of environmental contaminants, particularly heavy metal toxicity to astrocytes.  Astrocytes are the main depot for several metals in the brain and also serve protective roles against oxidative damage.  We are studying the interactions of metals with chaperone proteins and metal transporters in these cells and their involvement in neurodegenerative diseases.
