Sunghwan ‘Justin’ Ko
My name is Sunghwan Ko (I
also go by Justin), and I am in Dr. Sarah Ocañas' lab at the Oklahoma Medical
Research Foundation (OMRF). Our lab is interested in studying the effects of
aging and sex differences in microglia, the brain’s primary immune cell, and
how they impact neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD).
My doctoral research will focus on how the estrogen signaling pathway modulates
microglial function in response to aging and AD.
