Areas of Interest
Injury to the adult mammalian central nervous system results in permanent functional deficits. We pursue a mouse genetic approach to identify molecules and biochemical pathways that promote growth of severed axons, formation of new synapses and myelination of regenerated axons. A primary focus is to understand how the immune system influences neurorepair.
