EHSRC Role(s): Oxidative Stress and Metabolism

 


Dr. Pieper is devoted to a career in both patient care and basic science research applied to neuropsychiatric disease. His goal is to use his scientific and clinical skills to understand and investigate neuropsychiatric disorders in hopes of developing new pharmacologic treatments for patients. Dr. Pieper's dedication to identifying novel approaches to treating neuropsychiatric disease is exemplified by the discovery and development of the P7C3-class of neuroprotective aminopropyl carbozoles. This work has provided a rational basis for new lines of investigation into the basic science mechanisms underlying neuron cell death, and may lead to development of a new class of neuroprotective drugs with applicability to traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, peripheral nerve injury and other forms of neurodegeneration.
