Research Description

Neural stem cells hold great promise as potential therapuetic agents for a variety of central nervous system diseases and injuries. Our lab is interested in intrinsic and extrinsic regulators of cortical neural stem cell proliferation, neurogenesis, and neurite outgrowth/regeneration. Projects will utilize cell culture, immunocytochemistry, microscopy, collaborations with colleagues in biomedical engineering, behavioral analysis, and data analysis. Resumes with a completed course list can be sent by email. Dr. Flanagan's website: http://faculty.sites.uci.edu/flanaganlab/labmembers/prospective/
