Currently in the lab I am studying mechanosensitive pathways in the Central Nervous System. Specifically, I am interested how cells in a mechanically protective environment such as the brain are augmented by mechanical insult. Taking a reductionistic approach I am hoping elucidate the secondary mechanism involved in such scenarios like in Traumatic Brain Injury.
