Organizer: Valeria Cavalli

Investigators who participate in the Axon Injury & Repair Research Group study many aspects of axon biology including the cell biology and signaling mechanisms that underlie axonal and synaptic responses to trauma or disease, mechanisms that enable repair, and translational approaches to assessing axonal integrity in animals and humans.  Group meetings are open to the Washington University community, and those outside the Hope Center are welcome to present their research findings.
