Andrea Merchak

Postdoctoral Associate in Neuroscience, University of Florida

My research focuses on the interplay between the gut microbiota and the immune system in neurological disorders from neurodegenerative disorders to mood disorders. I am primarily focused on how T cells are primed by the microbiota and other exogenous factors via the aryl hydrocarbon receptor with hopes of garnering a better understanding of how certain individuals may be more susceptible to these disorders.
