As the Academic Coordinator of the Neonatal Brain Disorders Laboratory, I oversee the day-to-day scientific and administrative functions of the lab.  I also perform experiments on the mechanisms of hypoxic preconditioning protection and therapeutic cooling in hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy.  My focus is the role of hypoxia-inducible factor 1a and the endogenous antioxidant enzymes glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase.
