I have participated in the investigations on therapies that provide neuroprotection or enhance endogenous repair mechanisms in the brain after injury. I am currently studying the effect of serotonin reuptake inhibitors on neurogenesis and angiogenesis after stroke. Additionally, I am investigating the use of stem cells to enhance neurovascular recovery after traumatic brain injury.
