Bio Dr. Aurelie Tomczak received her Diploma (M.Sc.) in Applied Computer Science from Bielefeld University in 2005, and her Ph.D. from the Technical University Dresden (Germany) in 2011, where she worked in the Structural Bioinformatics group of Dr. Maria T. Pisabarro on the development and application of a structure-based computational approach to identify novel remote human chemokine homologs.
After receiving her PhD, Dr. Tomczak successfully applied for a grant to fund her postdoctoral research project in Dr. Philip Murphy's laboratory at the National Institutes of Health, where she worked on the experimental characterization of the chemokine-like proteins she identified in her PhD by combining Immunology, Computational and Structural Biology approaches.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Several neuronal diseases such as ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke and vascular dementia are associated with cerebral vascular injuries or pathologies. Cerebral vascular injuries cause blood brain barrier (BBB) disruption/dysfunction and BBB dysfunction is significantly associated with neurological diseases. Therefore, an understanding of the molecular mechanisms regulating BBB permeability and disruption is required for establishing efficacious therapeutic strategies.
There is currently a paucity of data available regarding the molecular mechanism of BBB dysfunction. microRNAs are small non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression by targeting mRNAs. microRNAs have been implicated in the development and progression of various diseases, such as vascular disease. However the role of microRNAs on BBB breakdown or permeability remains unclear. We aim to determine the role of candidate microRNAs in BBB breakdown and consequently establish novel prevention and therapeutic interventions.
