Jasmin Herz, Ph.D.

Research Assistant Professor, Washington University Medical School, St. Louis

Jasmin Herz, Ph.D., is a Research Assistant Professor at Washington University Medical School in St. Louis in the Department of Pathology & Immunology. The crosstalk between cells of the central nervous system and immune system is very complex and contributes to patterns of everyday life. Dr. Herz’s research focuses on how an immune response can be detrimental or beneficial for the brain and spinal cord during viral infections, neurodegeneration, and aging. Investigating how T cells and their derived cytokines, as well as peripheral inflammation, affect neuronal function and basic behaviors has become a major focus. Overall, Dr. Herz’s research crosses the disciplines of immunology, virology, and neuroscience and circles around the idea that neither system is self-regulated and they all function in alliance.
