Donald Stein, Ph.D. Principal Investigator Asa G. Candler Professor Distinguished Professor in Emergency Medicine firstname.lastname@example.org
Donald Stein is Asa G. Candler Professor in Emergency Medicine at the Emory University School of Medicine. His early findings on sex differences in recovery from brain injury led to decades of research on neurosteroids in CNS injury. His laboratory, the Brain Research Lab, now studies the actions of progesterone and its metabolites in pediatric, adult and aged models of TBI and stroke.
Dr. Hua's current research investigates the role of Toll-like receptors in ischemic stroke, mechanisms underlying secondary brain damage after traumatic brain injury and the potential role of progesterone in these areas.
Dr. Wang's extensive expertise in seemingly all lab tecniques supports the Brain Lab's work of investigating progesterone and its metabolites to develop safe and effective treatments for pediatric and adult traumatic brain injury, ischemic stroke and neurogenic tumors.
More about Jun's work at the Brain Lab can be found on his personal page.
Katherine is a volunteer research assistant at the lab, as well as the webmaster.
Because of her longtime interest in evolutionary nutrition (think: paleo) and human health from an evolutionary perspective, she has become involved with the Ancestral Health Society, acting as Registration Chair for the 2012 Ancestral Health Symposium held at Harvard Law School in August.
Her interests include brain health, fetal development, and the prevention of micronutrient deficiencies. Katherine also provides intensive birth and lactation support for women in Atlanta.
