Available Research and Technical Opportunities

Dr Bennett's Neural Regeneration Laboratory focuses on two complementary research goals. We study the (a) regulation of neural stem cell and progenitor fate by connexin protein family members influencing neuroregeneration and (b) the role of glycerophospholipid neuromodulators in progressive neuronal dysfunction characterizing neurodegenerative disease. The overarching goals are to reduce the rate of neuronal loss associated with brain injury and facilitate cell replacement by mobilizing endogenous progenitor cell populations.
