Research Statement:

The focus of Dr. Schuurmans’ research is on the specification of neural cell fates in the developing central nervous system, in particular in the developing retina and neocortex. She is now applying her knowledge of neural development to understand the injury response, and to mobilize endogenous stem cells for tissue repair. Her lab is also developing lineage conversion strategies for neural cell replacement therapies.
