Research Interests:

The specific microenvironments regulating stem cells, commonly referred to as niches, comprise multiple cell populations whose precise contributions are under active current exploration. Understanding the cross-talk between stem cells and their niche components is essential for the development of therapies against disorders in which stem cells function is altered.
Currently we are focusing on investigating neuronal injury and its repair mechanisms under various conditions. We use 2D & 3D cell culture platforms and animal model systems. Advanced microscopy and Molecular and cell biology techniques will be used to understand these processes.
