Current Research and Scholarly Interests My main research focus is in understanding the molecular mechanisms of axonal degeneration and subsequent failure of axonal regeneration in the CNS. Specifically I have identified a critical, common cellular pathway mediating axonal survival and degeneration following a variety of neurological injuries. Targeting this pathway presents a novel therapeutic modality to protect vulnerable nerve fibers and enhance functional recovery in many CNS diseases.
