I moved to the States for graduate school in 1999. My thesis work focused on the role of oxidative injury in spinal cord injury and the protective effects of membrane repair on oxidative injury and mitochondria function. After I finished my PhD project, I decided to switch my research into neurodegeneration. I joined the Wyss-Coray's lab in June of 2004 to pursue postdoctoral training and enjoy Californian sunshine. I am interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of TGF-β signaling in brain injury and neurodegeneration. My current projects focus on (1) bioluminescence imaging of TGF-β signaling in the brain and (2) the role of TGF-β signaling in neurodegeneration and autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
