Sarah is the principal investigator and creative director of the Kucenas lab at UVA. She is interested in elucidating the cellular and molecular mechanisms that mediate glial-glial interactions in the developing and regenerating nervous system. Her long-term goal is to understand the mechanisms that mediate cellular interactions along developing spinal motor nerves and use this information to better understand how the human nervous system is initially established, maintained, and behaves during disease.
