Associate Professor, Department of Neurological Surgery and Cell Biology & Anatomy
Research InterestsDr. Tsoulfas’ research centers on the development of the nervous system, neurotrophin signaling in neural cells and repair of the CNS after spinal cord injury.<br><br>For the development of the nervous system, his lab strives to understand how mitogenic factors influence cell numbers and how cell fates are linked to specific transcriptional networks. Live fluorescent imaging techniques are used to study neurotrophin signaling.<br><br>For spinal cord injury repair strategies, his lab utilizes modified neurotrophins and grafting of CNS derived cells. Several approaches are integrated, including Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics and Imaging techniques.
