Bio

My (very new) lab is interested in astrocytes! We are particularly interested in the heterogeneity of these brain cells – how they are established during development from neural stem cells and the implications of this diversity in their response to brain injury. We are also interested in examining whether astrocyte reprogramming (the conversion of one cell to another) to neurons is a viable strategy for brain repair after stroke.
