Associate Professor of Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests For most areas of the mammalian brain, the production of new nerve cells or neurons is restricted to fetal development. However, there are exceptions to the rule. Some areas of the brain continue to make new neurons throughout life. This neurogenesis is mediated by neural stem cells and our research goals are to understand how stem cell activity and fate are controlled. Ultimately, we hope to harness the nascent potential of stem cells to treat neurological injury and disease.
