Research Interests:  Investigating the molecular and cell biology of the traumatically injured adult central nervous system

 

Dr. Davies research interests are primarily focused on investigating the molecular and cell biology of the traumatically injured adult central nervous system.  His research team at CU Neurosurgery is currently developing two, complementary approaches to repairing the injured adult CNS: 1.) suppression or removal of scar tissue to promote axon growth across sites of injury and 2.) development of neural precursor (stem cell-like) technologies to generate different types of central nervous system glia suitable for repairing the injured brain and spinal cord.
