Dr. Arezoo Campbell is an Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The main focus of my laboratory is to determine how aberrant induction of innate immune responses may accelerate the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders. Currently we are investigating the potential of particulate matter present in air pollution to trigger an inflammatory response in the CNS of chronically exposed animal models.
Another focus of the laboratory is to analyze the toxicity of metal nanoparticles. Presently we are using human cell lines, derived from the CNS, to evaluate the potential toxicity of different forms of copper nanoparticles. Oxidative stress is evaluated as a potential mechanism of toxicity. Visit Dr. Campbell’s bio page to learn more about her work and how to get in touch.
