Dr. Ghashghaei is an Assistant Professor of Neurobiology at NC State University. Research in his laboratory is directed toward:

1. Understanding cellular and molecular mechanisms that underlie the development and functioning of adult neural stem cells in the mouse brain;

2. Development of methods to understand and alter the fate of adult stem cells toward distinct neuronal and glial lineages. 

3. Utilization of cell-based techniques in development of novel therapies in mouse and large-animal (veterinary) models of neurological diseases.

Dr. Ghashghaei's host is Dr. Stephanie Gupton.

 

The title of his seminar is:

“Centrosomes, nuclei, and transcription factors: Discovering novel mechanisms of symmetry in dividing neural stem cells”
