Credentials: PhD (Molecular Medicine and Genetics)
Position title: Post-Doctoral Fellow
Dan is working on novel pathways that regulate neural stem cell response to injury. Using in vivo transgenic mouse models, and in vitro mouse and human neural stem cells, Dan is investigating how demyelinating areas of the central nervous system can signal and alter neural stem cell differentiation and migration. He has received several awards including the post-doctoral fellowship from the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center at UW-Madison (2020), the SCRMC Fall Conference best blitz talk travel award from SCRMC (2021), Postdoc Excellence in Service award from the UW-Madison Postdoctoral Association (2021), the Sanofi award from the American Society for Neurochemistry (2020) and the Trainee Professional Development award from Society for Neuroscience (2020). Outside of lab, Dan is involved in the Postdoc Association, and WiSolve business group at UW-Madison. He also likes to explore new recipes through cooking, trivia nights throughout Madison, and checking out new festivals during the summer.
