Using in vivo and in vitro models of stroke and advanced molecular biology techniques, our laboratory focuses on investigating molecular mechanisms that regulate cell injury and recovery processes after stroke. Posttranslational modifications to chromatin have profound effects on gene expression and thus provide a multifaceted mechanism for regulation. Our recent research has focused on histone deacetylases (HDACs), a superfamily of enzymes that remove acetyl groups from histones and suppress transcription. The student will participate in our ongoing research on the role of HDAC3 in ischemic stroke. Under my mentorship, the student will learn to analyze behavioral tests, calculate infarct volume, and quantify immunostaining and WB. The student will also participate in the in vitro experiment using different cell types including neurons, astrocytes, microglia, and endothelial cells

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
