Dr. Sloan's laboratory team is interested in understanding human astrocyte development and what mechanisms underlie astrocyte maturation. They have a great interest in glioblastoma because it represents a pathological model of abnormal astrocyte development. They are attempting to find synthetic drivers of astrocyte maturation during development and believe that we could apply these approaches to glioblastomas as potential therapeutic interventions.
