Associate Professor of Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly Interests For most areas of the mammalian brain, the production of new nerve cells or neurons is restricted to fetal development. However, there are exceptions to the rule. Some areas of the brain continue to make new neurons throughout life. This neurogenesis is mediated by neural stem cells and our research goals are to understand how stem cell activity and fate are controlled. Ultimately, we hope to harness the nascent potential of stem cells to treat neurological injury and disease.
Postdoctoral Research fellow, Biomedical Informatics
Bio Dr. Maryam Panahiazar (Mary) was a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Medical Informatics group at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. During her appointment at Mayo Clinic she was working on personalized and translational medicine using machine learning and semantic web technology for clinical decision making, response therapy and recommendation engines. She has several years of research experience in machine learning, data mining, biomedical knowledge representation, semantic web and ontology development. She has been a key member in NIH R01 grant on semantics and services enabled problem solving environment, which have pioneered techniques for semantic web in life sciences. Mary ‘s research interest and expertise lies in applying informatics in healthcare and life sciences. She participated in the NIH training program where she worked on semantic similarity and data integration for NLM resources. She also was Research Associate at kno.e.sis center where she worked on data integration, ontology development, semantic annotation and question answering system. She contributed as program committee members of several conferences and reviewer for many journals and conferences.
