Emir Malovic received his PhD in neuroscience from Iowa State University. Broadly, he studied the neuroinflammatory mechanisms of astrocytes and microglia in Parkinson’s disease and manganism. His primary focus was in elucidating the mechanistic connections between N’6-methyladenosine (m6A) mRNA modifications and the inflammatory responses of manganese exposed astrocytes. With these new insights, Emir wishes to investigate m6A epitranscriptomic mechanisms of regulation in alcohol use disorder (AUD) for the purposes of therapeutic intervention.
