More about Dr. Patcher:
Dr. Pachter initially trained at the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research, in Milan, Italy, before pursuing his Ph.D. studies in axonal transport in the Department of Pharmacology at The New York University School of Medicine. After obtaining his Ph.D., Dr. Pachter completed a NIH-sponsored postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Physiological Chemistry at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, studying the mechanisms of tubulin gene autoregulation. He then accepted a faculty position in the Department of Physiology (now Cell Biology) at the University of Connecticut Health Center, where he has remained and was promoted to Full Professor in 2003. Dr. Pachter's major research interests are the blood–brain barrier and neuroinflammation. Most recently, he has turned his attention toward the emerging technique of laser capture microdissection, applying this toward exploring gene regulation of CNS barriers in situ. Dr. Pachter is also on the editorial board of Microvascular Research, and currently sits on study section at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
