Expertise

My lab focuses on understanding the progression of tissue pathology following peripheral and central nervous system injuries and diseases, and how pharmacological, cell-based, and combination therapies can improve anatomical and neurological outcome. Cellular and molecular mechanisms of how these therapies act are also of great interest.

My lab focuses on three primary areas of research: 1. Progression of tissue pathology in peripheral and central nervous system injury and disease models; 2. Therapeutic effects of pharmacological, cell-based, and combination therapies on anatomical and neurological outcomes; 3. Cellular and molecular mechanisms of pathology and therapeutic action.
