RIL: Dr. Mike Modo


Dr. Mike Modo

Mike Modo, a Luxembourg-native, graduated in Psychology from Royal Holloway University of London (1997) and spend 1 year as an undergraduate at the Psychology Department at McGill University (1995-1996) in Montreal, Canada. He then furthered his interests in the neural correlates underlying behavioral functions during an M.Sc. in Neuroscience (1998) at the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, where he also continued his research efforts leading to a PhD in Neurosciences (2001).

The main interest of Dr Modo’s research lies in the restorative neurobiology following brain damage, with most of our efforts focused on stroke. An interdisciplinary approach is espoused that involves the use of pharmacological approaches, stem cells, as well as biomaterials. A special focus lies on the development of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods that allow us to guide and monitor in situ tissue engineering. Our ultimate aim is to restore a functional tissue in the brain that can support behavioral recovery.
