About Me

Dr. McAlpine completed his PhD at McMaster University in Canada and his postdoctoral training at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The overarching theme of Dr. McAlpine's research program is to study neuro-immune interactions. We focus on how myeloid and glial cells interact in the brain and how the brain talks to the periphery to program myeloid cell function and hematopoiesis in the context of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. We use mouse models and human trials to study how lifestyle factors, like sleep, modulate these interactions. The McAlpine lab incorporates innovative tools and approaches at the interface of immunology, cardiology, and neuroscience to study the fundamental impact neuro-immune interactions, sleep, and brain-body communication in cardiovascular and neurological pathologies.
