Aisling Chaney, PhD

Assistant Professor, Radiology

The Chaney lab focuses on the development and evaluation of novel imaging biomarkers to investigate the inflammatory component of neurodegenerative diseases. The goals of this work are to enhance understanding, detection, and treatment of devastating neurological diseases through the development of non-invasive translational molecular imaging strategies. Specifically, we are interested in developing Positron Emission Tomography (PET) tracers targeting the innate immune system and defining the role of peripheral and central nervous system (CNS) immune responses in neurodegeneration (e.g., Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis) and infection. To achieve this, we employ multidisciplinary research at the interface of neuroscience, radiology, and immunology.
