Aaron Stebbins joined the Program for Neurology Research & Discovery in 2017 and has been studying facial nerve regeneration after nerve injuries. He is actively involved in maintaining cell cultures in microfluidic devices and implantable scaffolds where he studies the effects of inhibitory and neurotrophic factors on embryonic motor neurons. He performs animal dissections and survival surgeries that are translational to injuries seen in clinical patients. His assessment of these injuries include compound muscle action potential testing and immunohistochemistry to determine the rate of regeneration. His focus is to assist clinical surgeons in understanding the ideal methodology to enhance nerve regeneration and improving reinnervation. Aaron received his B.S. degree in nutritional science from Michigan State University.
