Oliver Bracko

Oliver Bracko has a Ph.D. from ETH Zürich in Switzerland, where he worked in Sebastian Jessberger's lab studying the role of adult neuronal stem cells in the hippocampus. After completing his Ph.D., Oliver did his postdoctoral research at Cornell University under the guidance of Chris Schaffer and Nozomi Nishimura. During this time, he discovered the phenomenon of capillary stalling, which can explain reduced brain blood flow in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.


Today, Oliver is an Assistant Professor at the University of Miami, where his research program is focused on innate immune cell contributions to brain blood flow reductions, vascular inflammation, and cognitive decline in mouse models of stroke (Post-stroke dementia) and mouse models of neurodegenerative diseases.
