MOLECULAR MECHANISMS RESPONSIBLE FOR NEURONAL DEVELOPMENT AND PATHOLOGY
Our research mission is to identify molecular mechanisms responsible for neuronal development and pathology. We currently focus on three goals: 1) Modeling trauma and neurodevelopmental disorders in human cellular systems to screen for novel therapeutic molecules. 2) Understanding the mechanisms that drive sensorimotor dysfunction in a mouse model of traumatic brain injury. 3) The identification of novel transcriptional programs in mammalian adult neurogenesis.
