Research Interests:

Dr. Han lab is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying neurovascular dysfunction and cognitive deficit associated with neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke. His research also includes preclinical pharmacology studies to identify/validate new therapeutic targets for CNS disorders, and evaluate the effects of novel drug candidates (small molecules, peptides and antibodies) for the diagnosis and treatment of neurovascular disorders utilizing in vitro as well as in vivo animal models. Currently, Dr. Han lab is exploring the effects of new multimodal agents on Aβ aggregation, metal chelation and cellular Aβ uptake/clearance, and their translational potential.
