Mukerji Lab

Mission Statement:

Neurological complications from infections include cognitive changes and depression. We study systemic indicators of health, immune function and metabolite networks to advance our understanding and management of neurological disorders after infections.

Research Focus:

The Mukerji Lab employs computational approaches to characterize and develop treatment options for depression and other neuropsychological comorbidities in people with HIV on antiretroviral therapy.
