Current research projects:
We are investigating the involvement of cerebral erythropoetin (Epo) in brain maturation and its neuroprotective role in premature brain injury.
Our current research focuses on understanding how Epo influences brain energy metabolism and the interactions between blood vessels, astrocytes and neurons. We are also investigating the protective role of Epo in models of hypoxia induced brain injury and epilepsy.
