Dr. Tabar's laboratory works to develop novel human ES-based cell replacement strategies for the treatment of central nervous system disorders such as neurodegenerative disease and radiation injury models. The current areas of research are: therapeutic application of stem cells in animal models of neural disease; Parkinson's and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and radiation injury to the brain; animal models, cellular basis of radiation injury and replacement therapy via human ES cells.
