Biography

Caitlin Hill received her B.Sc.H. in biology from Queen’s University in Kingston Ontario Canada in 1994 and her M.Sc. in zoology and neuroscience from the University of Toronto in 1996. She then began to focus her research on axon regeneration and spinal cord injury repair. She trained in the laboratories of several prominent spinal cord injury researchers including the laboratories of: Dr. Geoffrey Raisman at the National Institute for Medical Research in Mill Hill, London; Drs. Michael Beattie and Jacqueline Bresnahan at The Ohio State University, where she completed her Ph.D. in Neuroscience in 2002; and Drs. Patrick Wood and Mary Bartlett Bunge at the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. During her time at the University of Miami she was also an Associate for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and a visiting scientist in Dr. Pate Skene’s laboratory at Duke University. In 2010 she moved to Burke to continue her research on spinal cord injury repair.
