Brinkmeyer-Langford, Candice individual record
Research Associate Professor

My research focuses on the roles of genetic diversity on neurological conditions resulting from environmental agents, particularly viral infections. We use Theiler's Murine Encephalomyelitis virus (TMEV), a neurotropic virus affecting mice, and the genetically diverse Collaborative Cross mouse resource, to study the mechanisms underlying neuropathological outcomes to infection.
