Center for Neuroscience and Regeneration Research

The goal of our research is to harness the “molecular revolution” to restore function in the injured nervous system. Our objective is to promote functional recovery in spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke, traumatic brain injury and neuropathic pain.

We are a multidisciplinary team of scientists and clinicians researching ways to reverse the paralyzing effects of nerve demyelination, investigating mechanisms that mediate pain after nerve injury, and examining pharmacological and cell-based approaches to protect at-risk cells in the damaged nervous system.

Our vision of the future is one in which, as a result of advances in molecular, cellular and regenerative research, the effects of certain injuries and diseases of the nervous system will be substantially mitigated, or completely reversed.
