Research Interests:

The main focus of my laboratory research is delineating molecular mechanisms that regulate proliferation and differentiation of neural stem cells (including both embryonic and adult neural stem cells), with the ultimate goal of defining ways to recruit the stem cells that are resident in the brains of children and adults, and to thereby potentially promote neural repair. We use stroke as a brain disease model to study whether molecular pathways that regulate the recruitment of neural stem cells under pathological conditions could be modulated to promote brain repair and stroke recovery. I am also interested in developing optimized approaches for stem cell-based therapy to treat stroke.
