Kin-Sang (Anson) Cho, Ph.D.

The research of Dr. Kin-Sang (Anson) Cho has been focused on why neurons in the  Central Nervous System (CNS) cannot re-grow in adult mammals. Visual system has been used as a model to study CNS regeneration. The expression pattern of Bcl-2 had been shown to correlate to the decline of intrinsic growth ability of retinal ganglion cells (CNS neurons inside retina) during development. In addition, he has demonstrated that over-expressing Bcl-2 could maintain the intrinsic growth ability over growth-inhibitory substrates in culture.
