Anne Stowe, Ph.D.

Anne Stowe earned a Ph.D. in Molecular & Integrative Physiology from the University of Kansas prior to becoming a Postdoctoral Fellow at Washington University in St. Louis. She started her lab as an Assistant Professor in Neurology, UT Southwestern Medical Center prior to being recruited as an Associate Professor to the Depts. of Neurology & Neuroscience at the University of Kentucky. Her lab is currently funded by National Institutes of Health (NIH), the American Heart Association, and the Neilsen Foundation. Anne’s hypothesis is that the immune system plays a fundamental role in neuronal plasticity with a focus on B and T cells mediating cognitive and motor recovery in mice. Her clinical studies expand beyond stroke to include subjects with cognitive impairment. This combination of preclinical and clinical studies reflects her training and scientific philosophy that translational research will hasten the understanding of functional recovery during and following brain injury.
