The Department of Cellular and Integrative Physiology in the Long School of Medicine
at the University of Texas Health San Antonio is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to
engage in ongoing studies dedicated to the intersection between CNS circuits and metabolism
biology during brain repair. Our current efforts test how metabolic co-morbidities of stroke impact
long-term behavioral and cellular stroke recovery. This research uses the corticospinal motor
system as model cellular pathway to better understand patterns of cellular disruption and
adaptation after stroke. We seek to evaluate brain recovery in an integrative fashion by testing
outcomes at the level of individual cell, cell network, and whole-animal physiology and behavior.
The overall goal of these endeavors is to identify novel therapeutic targets and strategies that
provide meaningful long-term behavioral improvement after brain insults including stroke.
