Jeffrey MacklisMGH-HMS Center for Nervous System Repair, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA F1000 Faculty Member (since 03 August 2004)
Professor, Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, Harvard University
Director, MGH-HMS Center for Nervous System Repair
Neurosurgery (Neuroscience) and Neurology, and Program in Neuroscience, Harvard Medical School
Program Head, Neuroscience, Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Harvard University
He attended MIT, Harvard Medical School, and graduate school at MIT. within the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST). He was a postdoc in developmental neuroscience with Richard Sidman at Harvard Medical School. He trained clinically in Internal Medicine at Brigham and Women's Hospital and adult neurology in the Harvard-Longwood Neurological Training Program.
Jeffrey D Macklis' laboratory is directed toward the cellular repair of complex cerebral cortex and cortical output circuitry (including cortico-spinal motor neuron circuitry). The lab focuses on neural precursor/'stem cell' biology, neocortical projection neuron differentiation, functional neuronal circuit repair via transplantation, and induction of neurogenesis by molecular manipulation of endogenous neural precursors/stem cells within murine neocortex.
