Samuel’s research aims to improve our understanding of diverse neural diseases by deciphering protective neural pathways as well as mapping molecules that control how neurons develop and connect by applying precise, neuron-specific genetic tools.
“We are developing new approaches to visualize neural development and resiliency in living animals, resulting in some of the first high-resolution views into this process,” Samuel said. “With these methods we can simultaneously image of whole neurons, their synapses and numerous molecules within neurons and their neighbors.”
