Laboratory of Veterinary Neuroscience

Lab of Veterinary Neuroscience has been focused on understanding the function and dysfunction of the nervous system with a particular interest in axon biology. Axon or nerve fiber is a long projection of a neuron and is responsible for transmitting information within a neuron or to different neurons, muscles, and glands. Axon regeneration in the adult central nervous system (CNS) is extremely limited, whereas axons in the peripheral nervous system can and do regenerate after injury. We aim at understanding the mechanisms that control axon regeneration and hope to develop novel strategies for promoting CNS repair after injury. We are also investigating the causes and mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and dementia. We believe that better understanding of the mechanisms of neurodegeneration would lead us to find ways to diagnose and treat neurodegenerative disorders.
