PVM Scholar Leads Groundbreaking Study of How the Brain’s Own Protective System Could Help Advance Treatment of Neurodegenerative Conditions
Friday, August 13th, 2021 - A labyrinthian network of blood vessels helps to maintain normal health by protecting the human brain from foreign contaminants. Unfortunately, this natural protection comes with a cost: While the maze keeps the brain safe, it is also an obstacle when treating brain damage or disease. Finding ways through the network could mean a drastic improvement in quality of life. Dr. Tiffany Lyle, assistant professor of veterinary anatomic pathology in the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Comparative Pathobiology and a member of Purdue’s Center for Cancer Research, is on a mission to do just that. She is the first scientist to map changes to the brain’s barrier during metastases of lung cancer and, more recently, she has produced the first comprehensive, molecular mapping of the network in relation to blast-induced traumatic brain injuries.
