How Dr. Feliciano’s research is transforming health care

David is striving to understand how neural stem cells coordinate brain growth. Factors effecting brain growth have the potential to be leveraged in the development of therapeutic interventions for neurological disorders. His research is transforming health care by examining brain growth and other neurological processes that will help us further understand the etiology of neurological disorders, such as the epilepsy and autism spectrum disorders.
