Meet The Team


Craig E. Brown, Ph.D


Dr. Brown received his BSc. in Psychology from the University of Manitoba and completed his MSc and Ph.D in Neuroscience under the supervision of Dr. Richard H. Dyck at University of Calgary. He then conducted his post-doctoral studies focused on neural plasticity during stroke recovery at the University of British Columbia (UBC) under the supervision of Dr. Timothy Murphy. Dr. Brown started his neuroscience laboratory in 2009, and is now a full Professor in the Division of Medical Sciences at The University of Victoria (UVic).


One of his primary research interests is to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms that dictate brain repair, with particular emphasis on aging, stroke and/or vascular diseases such as diabetes. To address these questions, the Brown lab employs a multi-disciplinary approach, imaging the structure and function of defined cell types (neurons, microglia, endothelial cells) in the living brain in tandem with biochemical, pharmacological and behavioural approaches. Dr. Brown’s basic science and health related research program has been supported by the Canadian Institute for Health Research (CIHR), Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, and NSERC. Dr. Brown is also a recipient of the CIHR New Investigator award and the Michael Smith Foundation’s Career Investigator Award. ​

In his spare time Dr. Brown enjoys time with his family and spends many hours at the hockey rink.
