The Cavalli Lab

Our primary goal is to unravel the molecular events that dictate the regenerative response of neurons in the peripheral nervous system and use that information to improve nerve repair in both the peripheral and central nervous systems. Our work has implications for treating spinal cord injury, stroke and many neurodegenerative diseases.
