Research Area
Statement of Research: My current research aims to explore the sex differences brain function, and eventually aimed at developing more targeted therapy, especially for those diseases where sex differences are most prominent. Much of my work is centered on defining the consequences of cancer treatment-induced changes in CNS functionality and in developing pharmacologic, genetic and stem cell-based interventions for resolving these treatment-associated cognitive decrements.
