Brief description Neurotrauma, defined as an injury to the central nervous system, is a debilitating medical condition affecting over 3 million people annually worldwide. Loss of function following injury is largely due to the limited potential of nerve cells to regenerate. I will develop a bionic platform that conducts electrical signals and delivers growth promoting proteins thereby enhancing the directed regeneration of nerve cells necessary to bridge the gap caused by the injury and restore organ function.
