University of North Dakota / Medical School
POSITION START DATE
Brain metabolism, angiogenesis, neuroscience, molecular biology, mass spectrometry
Characterization the biochemical (using mass spectrometry and molecular biology techniques) and morphological profiles associated with brain angiogenesis under hypoxia, and perform evaluations of novel genetically modified animals. The goal of the project is to test our novel mechanism for brain angiogenesis regulation under hypoxia. The long-term goal of the project is to identify a drug target to regulate brain angiogenesis as the recovery mechanism after brain injury after stroke, heart arrest, and other neurotraumatic injuries.
