"More than bystanders, learning how microglia eliminate synapses in the Alzheimer brain"

Dr. Soyon Hong, University College London, UK

Dr. Hong received her PhD in Neuroscience in 2012 from Harvard University and completed her postdoctoral fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in 2018. Dr. Hong is dedicated to the studying of microglia biology and mechanisms of neurodegeneration. Dr. Hong’s laboratory aims to unravel the immune mechanisms of neural circuitry and function. Specifically, the laboratory is dedicated to investigating changes in microglial state and function in learning and memory, and how neuroglial communications break down in dementia.
