Kate M. Candelario, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Florida College of Medicine

Location: Gainesville, FL United States

Kate M. Candelario, PhD, is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Dennis Steindler's group in the Department of Neurosurgery in the McKnight Brain Institute at the University of Florida College of Medicine. Dr. Candelario graduated from the University of California, Davis, where she received a BS degree in neurobiology, physiology and behavior. She received her PhD in biomedical sciences from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, working under the direction of Dr. Lee Anna Cunningham. Dr. Candelario’s graduate work involved understanding the neurogenic response to ischemic stroke, particularly the ability of neural stem/progenitor cells in the subventricular zone (SVZ) to survive hypoxia and protect cortical neurons from injury. Her current studies focus on isolation and analysis of exosomes/microvesicles from neural cells derived from induced pluripotent stem cells from patients with Parkinson's disease.
