Research focus:

We developed in my Lab a new model for induce fetal hydrocephalus by injecting Bioglue in the fetal cisterna magna. We’re working to determine the cellular and molecular impact of the fetal brain compression by progressive increasing ventricles in-utero and looking for innovative pharmacological and surgical prenatal treatments.
