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”
