Daniel Manrique studied psychology at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Cali (Columbia) from 2009 to 2013. He worked as neuropsychologist at Valle Hospital and as a research assistant of the neuroscience research line at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana. In 2014 he received a scholarship from the International Graduate School of Neuroscience to start doctoral studies in Neuroscience at Ruhr University Bochum. Since then he is working on a collaborative project within the NeuroScienceLab, examining extracellular matrix remodeling after focal cerebral ischemia. In 2016, he became a PhD student at Duisburg-Essen University.
Research interests

Daniel Manrique's research focusses on the role of the extracellular matrix (ECM) after focal cerebral ischemia. He is analysing how tenascin-C deficiency influences post-ischemic brain plasticity and remodeling. In additional studies Daniel Manrique examines effects of ABC transporter deactivation on brain plasticity and remodelling in the post-acute stroke phase.
