Dr. Dave received his PhD in Biochemistry in 2000 from the M. S. University of Baroda, India. During his PhD training he worked on several research projects including secondary complications of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and drug toxicity among others. From 1999 to 2000 Dr. Dave served at the Zandu Pharmaceutical Works, Mumbai, India, as a Biochemist, where he participated in a drug development program. The goal of Dr. Dave’s current research is to study potential signaling pathways responsible for neuronal death in neurodegenerative diseases, especially cerebral ischemia. Investigation of intracellular signaling pathways may lead to the development of novel therapies for patients with neurodegenerative diseases and stroke. Dr. Dave’s research also investigates the effect of cerebral ischemia on cognitive and motor functions in young and old rats.
