The Villapol laboratory studies the inflammatory and neurodegenerative mechanisms triggered after brain trauma or stroke in a sex dependent manner. The laboratory is also investigating the contribution of peripheral signals and the gut microbiome to brain pathology. Our main focus is uncovering novel neurorestorative treatments for brain recovery through the lens of the periphery.

Welcome to the VILLAPOL LAB!

Our lab pursues novel neurorestorative treatments for brain recovery through the lens of the periphery.

Our Symposium at Houston Methodist Research Institute on “Neuroinflammation and Neurorestoration: Brain Injury through the lens of the Periphery” April 6, 7 will be RESCHEDULED to a later date due to the COVID-19 situation. For further info, please visit events.houstonmethodist.org/neurorestorati

Traumatic Brain Injury in Mice Induces Acute Bacterial Dysbiosis within the Fecal Microbiome
Frontiers in Immunology

The secondary injury cascade that is activated following traumatic brain injury (TBI) induces responses from multiple physiological systems, including the immune system. These responses are not limited to the area of brain injury; they can also …
