Ashish Dhir, PhD

  • Associate Project Scientist
  • Project 2
Dr. Ashish Dhir is an Associate Project Scientist at the University of California, Davis with 14 years of experience in neurology research. At the CounterACT Center, Dr. Dhir is conducting tests of antiseizure agents in models of acute seizures (status epilepticus) and lethality produced by chemical threat agents of the organophosphate cholinesterase-inhibiting type, including DFP. He is also involved in the development of spontaneous recurrent seizures through long-term monitoring following DFP-induced status epilepticus.
