    Research interests

    Major research interests include the role of transcriptional control in the processes of axonal regeneration and neuronal differentiation.  We are particularly interested in the delivery of potential axon growth-promoting genes into neurons of the peripheral and central nervous systems.  Gene transfer techniques include both viral and non-viral delivery systems while the experimental approaches involve in vitro systems using both primary neurons and cell lines.
    Subsidiary research interests include the role of the GATA transcription factor family in cardiogenesis and their role in the epicardium in terms of both development of the coronary vasculature and the potential for cardiomyocyte diffrentiation.

    Research interests (short)

    Interests include the molecular basis of neuronal differentiation and axonal regeneration. In particular, the role of transcriptional regulation in these processes.
