Brief description Our goal is to understand how adult nerves are affected by injury so that we can devise therapies to make them regrow better. We will focus on nerves that control the urogenital organs because these are often injured during surgical procedures (e.g. prostatectomy, hysterectomy), with devastating effects on patients' quality of life. In this project we will investigate how naturally-occurring growth-inhibitory molecules affect nerve regrowth after injury in the pelvic nervous system.
