His current medical study and research at Stanford is directed towards applying early detection strategies to the treatment of brain tumors and reversing the damaging side effects of treatment-related brain injury. He received his Ph.D from Zurich University and completed postdoctoral neurosurgery training at Duke University where he was studying experimental models of neuro modulation of glycemia and immune system in infectious diseases and inflammatory disorders. He evaluated the Electrical modulation efficacy in ongoing inflammation and hyperglicemia under different conditions, such as somatotopy organizations, disease states and intensities (electrical current/potential); and he recognized different neuro fibers controlling inflammation and glycemia networks. He pushed further his idea to find out whether regulation of glycemia and inflammation by electricity is dependent on central processing and to discover a new mechanism controlling insulin production. For this novel study, he performed Spinal Cord surgery. Also, as a bioengineer, his previous research focused on drug discovery, cell biology and cell cultivation techniques for optimization of growth and bioengineering parameters in bioreactors. He has experience in expression of therapeutic antibodies and production of secondary metabolites in mammalian and plant cell cultivations for therapeutics and diagnostics aims.
