Cerebrovascular disease is one of the most common causes of neurological mortality and morbidity worldwide. In addition to the physical consequences of acute stroke, cerebrovascular dysfunction and pathology causally contribute to cognitive impairment across the spectrum of dementias. Microglia and related myeloid cells are involved in a range of neurovascular interactions and increasing evidence suggests they mediate resilience and adaptive responses to various forms of cerebrovascular disease, both acute and chronic. In this seminar, I will describe our recent work investigating microglial mechanisms of resilience and repair in the context of cerebrovascular disease and highlight the implications for understanding and treating stroke and dementia.
