In this project, we will be combining the fields of neuroimmunology and metabolomics. Specifically, we will develop an in vitro model of the enteric nervous system (ENS) from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), where we will investigate the immunometabolism of enteric glial cells and their possible role in Parkinson’s disease.
