Biography:

My research focuses on developing cell-based therapies for neurological disorders by using the latest developments in stem cell biology, molecular biology and imaging. Over the last several years my lab has worked extensively with glial progenitor cells and mesenchymal stem cells evaluating their utility for treatment of neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis, stroke and traumatic brain/spinal cord injury. My expertise includes stem cell biology, small and large animal neurosurgery, including spinal cord microinjections, inducing models of neurological diseases (stroke, traumatic brain/spinal cord injury, demyelination), MRI, optical imaging and histological assessment of brain tissue.
