Mechanisms of Axon Degeneration and Neuroprotection in Peripheral Neuropathies

Weekly Seminar | Not Open to the Public
Who Should Attend: 


Dr. Hoke's research focuses on mechanisms of axon degeneration in models of peripheral neuropathies and identification of new drugs and pathways to prevent development of peripheral axonal degeneration. In addition, his research examines the role of Schwann cells in peripheral nerve regeneration and inherited neuropathies.
