Arthur W. English, PhD, is Professor of Cell Biology and Rehabilitation Medicine at the School of Medicine, Emory University. At Emory, he concentrates on investigating recovery from nerve injury from multiple perspectives. On one level, he investigates methods to enhance axon regeneration post-injury, advancing our understanding of the interactions between neuronal activity, gonadal hormones, and neurotrophins. On another level, Dr. English is exploring spinal cord nerve synapse plasticity following nerve injury, with particular attention to the role of axonal protein synthesis. On a third level, Dr. English researches the effects of exercise on post-injury functional nerve recovery – this program is funded by the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. Dr. English received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at the University of Illinois.
