Philip H. Schwartz, PhD

Dr. Schwartz's research for the past few years has been involved in the harvest of human brains from patients that have died with neurogenetic disease and the research in his laboratory is directed towards understanding the factors influencing the behavior of human central nervous system (CNS) stem cells and multipotent CNS progenitor populations in the normal and neurogenetically diseased brain.
