Elizabeth Kirby is a neuroscientist who focuses on how stem cells behave in the adult brain. The adult brain has several, unique pockets of stem cells that persist well in to old age. Kirby's lab uses rodent models to study how these cells are controlled and how they can impact the brain. Dr. Kirby's lab is particularly interested in how our own stem cells can help in recovery and regeneration after injury. Dr. Kirby came to OSU in August of 2016 after completing a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University. Dr. Kirby's PhD in neuroscience is from the University of California Berkeley.
