Project title: In vivo imaging characterisation of inflammatory response following TBI
Background: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) consists of two phases: an immediate phase in which damage is caused as a direct result of the mechanical impact; and a late phase of altered biochemical events that results in delayed tissue damage during which therapeutic intervention is possible. Amongst other factors, a strong inflammatory reaction takes place which may contribute to the secondary brain damage.
Objective: The first part of the project will be to evaluate the time course and number of inflammatory cells adhering to the cerebrovascular endothelium in deep brain vessels after traumatic brain injury. This will be investigated in vivo by multi-photon microscopy. In the second part of the project the student will a) monitor the effect of various drugs on leukocyte-endothelial interaction in vivo and b) determine their effect on secondary brain damage via histology and functional outcome.
