Dr. Arlotta is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology Department at Harvard University, where she investigates the mechanisms that control the development, regeneration and assembly of neurons in the cerebral cortex. Much of her work is aimed at identifying regenerative strategies for neurodegenerative and traumatic diseases of the corticospinal tract, including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and spinal cord injury. She completed her postdoctoral research at Harvard Medical School.
