In collaboration with Barbara Stonestreet at WIH, while the work was focused on hypoxic-ischemic brain damage in neonates, this paper reported the major findings of the neuroprotective effects of protein therapeutics in adult and aging animals with ischemic stroke.
This collaboration with many talented scientists took more than 8 years to complete.
The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine successfully passed the College of American Pathologist (CAP) laboratory accreditation inspection on July 20, 2021.
