Area of Expertise

My laboratory is interested in identifying treatments for brain injury resulting from stroke, traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer Disease, and metabolic syndrome. We are particularly interested in identifying early points of intervention to reduce or prevent progression of disease. Previous studies have focused on steroid hormones and plant estrogens and current projects are focused on using novel compounds to protect and regenerate brain tissue after stroke and traumatic brain injury.
