Abstract: Prof. Donna Ferriero shares her work on the mechanism of injury and repair during brain development and describes how growth factors may enhance cell proliferation.
Prof Donna Ferriero received her MD in Medicine from the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) in 1979, and has been faculty there since then. She is currently Professor of Pediatrics and Neurology and Chair of Pediatrics and Physician-in-Chief of the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. She is also Director of the Neonatal Brain Disorder Laboratories and Co-director of the Newborn Brain Research Institute at UCSF.
Prof Ferriero’s main research interests focus on newborn brain injury, oxidative injury, hypoxic gene signaling, neonate, brain development, hypoxia and ischemia. Her laboratory has been critical in defining the role of oxidative stress during hypoxia-ischemia and the relationship of selectively vulnerable populations of neural cells during maturation-dependent injury.
Prof Ferriero received numerous awards including the Sidney Carter Award in Child Neurology, the Royer Award for Excellence in Academic Neurology, and the Willis Award, etc. She is a Member of the Institute of Medicine and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
