Research summary
Understanding factors that promote or hinder glial bridging and neurogenesis in zebrafish.

This past summer I worked in the lab of Dr. Mayssa Mokalled studying spinal cord regeneration in zebrafish. We are interested in understanding the role of glial bridging and inflammation in spine regeneration, and which genes may help or hinder that process after spinal cord transection. To that end I have been sequencing genes of interest and doing surgery on the fish.
