I am a research scientist in the Kipnis Lab.  I hold a degree of DVM and have spent over a decade working in the academic settings on animal models of CNS injuries.  My current project is focused around the role of peripheral and central immunity in neuroprotection following CNS trauma.  I also perform animal models surgeries for ongoing projects in the lab and oversee our large mice colony.
