Her research is supported by the NIH (NIDA, NIMH, NINDS, NCRR), the ONDCP and the University of Hawaii.

Raymond Chang, Section Editor: Natural Medicine 

Raymond Chang
Dr. Raymond Chang received his BSc and MPhil in Biochemistry, Neurochemistry and Neuroanatomy in Hong Kong, China. His doctoral works were performed as a German Academic Exchange Student investigating neurophysiology and clinical neuroscience at the University of Munich, Munich, Germany. Postdoctoral training was performed in neuroimmunology, neuropharmacology, and molecular neuroscience at the National Institutes of Health, USA.
He has published over 90 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters in the field of neurosciences. His research interests currently center around works seeking to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases (AD and PD) and their related neuroimmune responses. He heads the Laboratory of Neurodegenerative Diseases in Hong Kong that investigates the role played by beta-amyloid aggregation and autophagy in the pathobiology of AD. Mitochondria function and cellular clearing mechanisms including the ubiquitin proteasome system are actively studied with the goal in achieving the elimination of tau and other aggregated proteins that can induce disease.
These and other disease events are being investigated with an eye towards developing herbal medicines that would be used to slow or attenuate the severity or course of AD and PD. Studies of how such medicines can affect a broad range of aging co-morbidites in AD and PD are pursued that include depression, abused substances, obesity, hypertension and systemic inflammation. All can modulate neuroimmune responses that are linked to progressive age-related diseases.

Marco Cosentino, Section Editor: Neurotransmitters 

Dr. Marco Cosentino is Professor of Pharmacology and Chair of the Center for Research in Medical Pharmacology at the University of Insubria, Varese (I).
Dr. Cosentino received the medical degree cum laude from the University of Pavia and the PhD degree in Pharmacology and Toxicology from the University of Turin. He was appointed as member of the II Faculty of Medicine of the University of Pavia and thereafter as member of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Insubria. Dr. Cosentino very soon concentrated his research interests on neuro- and immunopharmacology and specifically on dopaminergic and adrenergic pathways in the neuroimmune network, which has been his main area of investigation during the last two decades. During all this period, together with his research group, he developed several original strategies and techniques for the study of dopaminergic and adrenergic mechanisms in immune cells, including measurement of receptor expression and function, ex vivo/in vitro functional assays for the phenotipization and functional characterization of innate and adaptive immunity in health and disease, including pharmacogenetic approaches. His overarching goal is to provide a sound scientific background for the repurposing of established adrenergic and dopaminergic therapeutics as novel immunomodulating agents in neuroimmune diseases.
His research has provided major contribution to unravel the importance of endogenous production of the catecholamines dopamine, noradrenaline and adrenaline in human immune cells, as well as the involvement of dopaminergic and adrenergic neuroimmune mechanisms in major diseases such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and Parkinson's disease.

Harris A. Gelbard, Section Editor: Visual Neuromedicine 

Harris Gelbard
Harris Gelbard is Professor of Neurology, Microbiology and Immunology, and Pediatrics and Director of the Center for Neural Development and Disease, University of Rochester Medical Center. Dr. Gelbard received his MD/PhD-Pharmacology in 1983 from Northwestern University Medical School, Chicago, Ill and joined the University of Rochester Medical Center in 1989.
Dr. Gelbard's research focuses on how HIV-1 and its constituent proteins disrupt the normal function(s) of two enzyme targets, glycogen synthase kinase 3 beta (GSK-3β) and mixed lineage kinase 3 (MLK3) in neurons, macrophages and microglia, with the ultimate goal of designing small molecule therapies to prevent their pathologic activation seen in neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative disorders.
His research has made particularly important strides in developing striking visual presentations of research discovery. For example, he has adapted visual chronic thin-skull window methods for use in closely monitoring the biology, physiology, and molecular profiles of murine microglia in vivo over time using two-photon microscopy. His laboratory is at the cutting edge of visual experiments towards linking accessible translucent thinned-skull cortical windows for continuous observations of cellular events in the brain seen during disease and neurorepair.
He has over 20 years of continuous research support from the National Institutes of Health (NIMH, NINDS) and is well published in the fields of neuropharmacology, neurovirology, and neuroimmunity.

    Aims and Scope


    The aims of the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology are to promote the dissemination, interest, and exchange of new and important discoveries for the pharmacology and immunology of the nervous system. The aims parallel that of the Society on NeuroImmune Pharmacology by increasing the fundamental understanding of neurologic and neuropsychiatric disorders affected by the immune system or vice versa and towards pharmacologic measures that lead, either to a better understanding of disease mechanisms, or by improving disease outcomes. The scope of JNIP includes all primary works and reviews into the etiology, prevention, and treatment of neuroimmune and nervous system diseases affected by disordered immunity. Original studies serving to define neuroimmune modulation of environmental or endogenous cues such as toxins and drugs of abuse, hormones, and cytokines are welcome. JNIP will serve as a reliable source of interdisciplinary information bridging the fields of pharmacology, immunology, and neuroscience.
