Kim will participate in an NIH funded project entitled “Combined Nanoparticle and Neural Stem Cell Therapies in a Pig Model of Stroke (1R01NS093314-01A1)”. As part of the research team, Kim will be involved in assessing nanoparticle efficacy utilizing histological endpoints in a stroke pig model. Histologically, she will assess the effect of nanoparticles delivering the anti-oxidant coQ10 and the anti-inflammatory tetracycline on neuron survival, gliosis, macrophage infiltration, activation of endogenous neural stem cells and lesion size. Congratulations, Kim!
Emily Baker just received a University of Georgia Travel Award to present her transformative findings at the International Stroke Conference in Houston, Texas in February. She will share her research demonstrating paradigm changing neuroprotective and regenerative effects of neural stem cell therapy on ischemic stroke.
Congratulations to Madelaine Wendzik, one of our superstar undergraduate researchers, for being awarded the highly competitive CURO Summer Fellowship to continue her research in our lab!! Great work Madelaine! We are going to have tons of fun!
