Dr. Murphy studies mechanisms that can protect the brain from damage caused by strokes. Strokes can occur at any age, and are especially devastating in infants. He currently focuses on the potential of histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors, which are anti-cancer drugs but with neuroprotective effects in the central nervous system. In particular, Murphy focuses on the analysis of motor and cognitive behavioral outcomes in mice and co-directs the Animal Behavior Core for the Center.
