Focus of Work


My work seeks to understand how chemokines and their receptors regulate aspects of adult and embryonic neurogenesis. Translational aspects of this research concern the hope that neural stem cells can be directed by cytokines to conduct brain repair following trauma, stroke and neurodegenerative disease, such epilepsy. Techniques I mastered include mouse genetics, neuro-histology, neural stem cells and fluorescence imaging
