Injury Size –

Spinal cord injuries result in loss of the tissue that is important for connections from the brain to the body. PhD Candidate Jarred Griffin explains; “Here in the SCIRF we have several lines of research that are showing promise to prevent the initial damage or to regenerate and replace the missing tissue leading to improved motor and sensory recovery. These avenues include the connexin peptide neuroprotective therapy, the scar-busting gene therapies, exercise rehabilitation, blood vessel protection, and regeneration-promoting electrical stimulation” Further information on research being undertaken at the SCIRF visit our Research Updates page
