About Us

The Neurorepair Lab focuses on the investigation of mechanisms of injury and recovery following damage to the CNS, primarily following stroke and perinatal hypoxia. The combined research aims in this multi-investigator lab include excitotoxicity mechanisms in oligodendrocytes during white matter injury, anti-inflammatory mechanisms during endogenous neurovascular protection, and the role of exercise on prevention of injury and behavioral recovery. We use molecular, surgical and behavioral techniques, including flow cytometry, confocal immunohistochemistry, exercise training, hypoxic exposure, and delivery of neurotherapeutics. We also hope to start additional in vitro studies in the near future.
