A laboratory studying glial cell biology and pathology in the central nervous system

The Guo laboratory is located at the 6th floor of Shriners Hospitals for Children, Northern California / UC Davis, Medical Center at Sacramento campus. Our research interest is glial cell biology and pathology (oligodendroglia, astroglia, microglia and ependymal cells) in the healthy and diseased CNS using a combination of genetic, molecular, cellular and high-throughput approaches applied to both in vitro and in vivo models.

Our lab currently receives funding from the NIH/NINDS and Shriners Hospitals for Children.
