Characterizing the role of primary cilia in neural progenitor cell development and neonatal hydrocephalus


The human mind is fascinating. How we think, how we remember and how our brains change over time. Underneath all these “routine” processes lies complex biological mechanisms that are constantly changing. I am interested in studying these biological mechanisms that underlie “basic” human tasks such as learning and memory. I am also interested in how dysfunction of these mechanisms leads to disease with the ultimate goal of being able to prevent/treat these diseases.
