Enhancing Peripheral Nerve Regeneration and Restoring Function After Nerve Injury
Our major research focus is to translate novel therapies that have shown promise in basic science studies, as well as testing their efficancy in patients with peripheral nerve injury. Our collaborative multidisciplinary team compromises of clinician scientists, basic scientists, rehab specialists, peripheral nerve surgeons and biomedical engineers.
Working in collaboration with world-class scientists, we use animal models of peripheral nerve injury to glean mechanistic insights and efficacy of novel therapeutic treatments. By forging a close tie between the basic science work and clinical testing, our goal is to expedite the translation of promising treatments from bench to bedside.
