I'm interested in the interactions between electric fields and precursor cells. In particular, I'm investigating using electrical stimulation to induce and direct neural stem and progenitor cell migration in the brain. The ability to direct cell migration could be used to direct stem cells to injury sites where they could contribute to tissue repair.
