Anjana Jain

My research interests are in nervous system injury, repair, and cancer therapeutics.   In order to develop strategies for central nervous system tissue repair and cancer therapeutics, my laboratory is interested in using ones that are nanotechnology based to re-create or alter the microenvironment to make it more conducive.
