Protecting and Repairing the Damaged Nervous System

Weekly Seminar | Not Open to the Public
Who Should Attend: 


Stem cell, growth factors, and nanoengineered materials provide the tools that are beginning to make regenerative neurology a reality. The first part of the seminar will examine how immune-modifying nanoparticles can be used to prevent secondary damage after traumatic brain injury. The second part will describe clinical trials of a gene therapeutic approach to painful diabetic neuropathy. The last part will focus on how pluripotent stem cells can be used to begin to understand the pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease.
