Neil Schwartz, MD, PhD
Clinical Associate Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My clinical interests involve inpatient and outpatient care of patients with neurovascular diseases, mostly ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. I have a particular interest in cervical artery dissection, non-atherosclerotic vasculopathies, and stroke in the young.

Sr Research Scholar, Pediatrics - Center for Biomedical Ethics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on the political, legal, ethical and economic impacts of stem cell research. Topics include: embryonic and adult stem cell research and clinical trials, stem cell banking, human-animal chimeras; cell and gamete donation; international perspectives of bioethics; global economic impacts; national and state regulatory policy, stem cell entrepreneurship, intellectual property and offshore stem cell transplants.
Matthew P. Scott
Professor of Developmental Biology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research has been focused on the genetic regulation of animal development and its relation to birth defects, cancer, and neurodegeneration. We studied mechanisms and functions of Hedgehog (Hh) signaling, which controls cell fates and growth, in the context of normal development and brain cancer. We studied a neurodegenerative disease, Niemann-Pick C syndrome, that affects intracellular organelle movements and sterol homeostasis. Due to Dr. Scott's new job, the lab is no longer active.
Assistant Professor (Research) of Obstetrics and Gynecology (Reproductive and Stem Cell Biology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The thread of Ariadne that connects germ cells, preimplatation development and pluripotent stem cells is the focus of my research, with a specific interest in human development. My long-term goals are: 1. Understanding the biology of germ cells and and their ability to sustain early preimplantation development; 2. Understanding the mechanisms that regulate very early cell fate decisions in human embryos; 3. Understanding the biology of derivation and maintenance of Pluripotent Stem Cells
