Research Activities

My research interests are in spinal cord and peripheral nerve injuries and repair. My major focus is on how glial cells in the central/ peripheral nervous system support neuron survival and axon regeneration after injury as well as how they contribute to the progression of diseases. Currently, I am using cell culture and animal models to study how Schwann cells derived from human tissues can help with the repair process.
