Research Interests

  • My interest within the neuroscience field has been to focus in neurodegenerative diseases and neuroprotection. Many neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, stroke, traumatic brain injury, aging and dementias have factors in common which are inflammation, oxidation, and decrease in cognition and memory. I recognized the robust therapeutic benefits of harnessing endogenous neurogenesis, which can be stimulated with the use of either growth factor or stem cells to proliferate and help repair brain injury.
