Our mission is to generate therapies for people who suffer from chronic paralysis and neurologic loss due to devastating injury, stroke or degenerative disease. The Center for Neuroregeneration is comprised of laboratories with expertise in neural stem cell biology, neural activity and stimulation, robotics, cell growth, myelin and the genetic regulation of plasticity. The Center for Neuroregeneration focuses on collaborative problem solving and bioengineering approaches that are incubated within our research laboratories but also through strategic partnerships with clinical and biotherapeutic entities. Signature projects include a focus on restoration of locomotor and sensory function through neural stimulation and promotion of innate regenerative capacity through cell and gene therapy. Researchers have also harnessed the tools of cell engineering to create human neural circuits within experimental microenvironments to better model disease and produce neural replacement parts for repair of the brain and spinal cord.
Active research initiatives include neural regeneration strategies to address recovery from:
- Spinal cord injury
- Head Injury
- Motor/cognitive decline associated with aging
The Center for Neuroregeneration is hiring! Positions open for a Brain Computer Interfacing Scientist and Synaptic Functionality Scientist. Check our Jobs page
