Research Summary:

Our work is focused on stimulating axonal growth of the adult rodent central nervous system (CNS) following spinal cord injury (SCI). To overcome limited CNS growth following traumatic injury we provide a favorable environment with cell transplantation and biomaterials as well as genetic or pharmaceutical stimulation of the axonal growth potential. Moreover, we are interested in structural changes (plasticity) responsible for positive (spontaneous recovery) and negative outcomes after SCI (chronic neuropathic pain and spasticity) as well as therapeutic means (such as neurorehabilitation) to modulate them.
