From stem cell technology to functional restoration after spinal cord injury
ID: 518233
Start date: 2005-12-01, End date: 2009-05-31
Spinal cord injuries (SCI) have long been regarded as intractable, largely due to the alleged inability of the mammalian CMS to regenerate. However, over the last two decades, technological advances combined with the understanding of the pathophysiology of SCI have progressed ...
