"From High Content Screening to In Vivo Testing: The Hunt for Novel Genes to Promote CNS Repair"

March 24, 2017 at Noon
John D. Wiley Conference Center
Murray Blackmore, PhD - Marquette University

About the Speaker: Dr. Blackmore received his undergraduate degree from Stanford University, and his graduate degree in neuroscience from the University of Minnesota. During his postdoctoral training at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, Blackmore studied axon regeneration and adopted High Content Screening methods to identify new gene targets to promote neural repair. Later, as a research assistant professor at the Miami Project, Blackmore used a gene therapy approach to test these new gene targets for the ability to promote axon regeneration in the injured spinal cord. Blackmore is continuing this line of research at Marquette University, using viral delivery of genes to injured neurons in rodent models of spinal injury in order to foster repair.
