Regenerative Strategies for Neural Injury

Each year in the United States over 1.7 million individuals will experience a traumatic or ischemic-related brain injury, with 350,000 persons sustaining a severe to moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI) and an additional 800,000 people suffering from stroke. Our laboratory specifically focuses on (1) engineering novel targeted diagnostic and therapeutic (‘theranostic’) biomaterials for neural injury/disease and (2) identifying endogenous neural stem cell homing mechanisms after injury and incorporating such biosignals into tissue-engineered matrices.

I've been on an epic email chain this week with all female professors about the current state of #pandemicparenting and the moms are not ok. We're faced with massive school closures, raging disease, snow, and quarantines. 1/

Hydrogel scientists, I'm proud to publicly announce my latest all-consuming side-project: http://Hydrogeldesign.com The goal of this site is to publicly share my ongoing work with hydrogel design in a user-friendly format. (🧵)

Kudos to @NIBIBgov! Apply quick! This FOA seeks R01 apps that propose independent research within the scientific mission areas of NIBIB. This program is intended to support ESI and NI from diverse backgrounds, including those from underrepresented groups.
