Biographical Info

Research Areas

My laboratory is interested in numerous facets of central nervous system pathology, particularly in developmental neurotoxicology, traumatic brain injury, and the differential responses of various CNS cell types to insult.  We are particularly interested in the recruitment of endogenous neural stem cells to sites of injury as a potential therapeutic approach to brain injury.

The laboratory also provides diagnostic histopathology support to investigators across the Rutgers community

Research Highlights

  • Established a lateral fluid percussion model for TBI and initiated studies of persistent blood-brain-barrier defects following closed-head injury
  • Investigated the comparative neurotoxicity of amphoterocin-type fungicides
  • Examining the developmental pathology of low-dose methylmercury exposure in vitro and in vivo
  • Documented recruitment of periventricular stem cells to the hippocampus following chemical injury

Scholarly Activities

  • Review Article Editor-NeuroToxicology
  • President-MidAtlantic Society of Toxicology
  • External Advisory Committee-University of Michigan Toxicology Program
