Brief Description of Research Interest :

Working as a post-doctoral researcher in Dr. Zhigang He’s laboratory is the perfect culmination of my training in cellular & molecular neurobiology. Currently, I am working to identify methods that initiate the myelination of regenerating axons after CNS injury. Hopefully, this work can be extended to demyelinating disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis and Leukodystrophies. I have extensive experience testing the efficacy of treatments for neurological disorders in rodent models, including chronic pain and rare demyelinating diseases. My Ph.D. from Brown University in developmental neuroscience and molecular physiology put me in an excellent position to apply developmental tools to the promotion of neuronal regeneration after injury or disease.
