Thread: Working 2 Walk 2012 Presentations coming online

    Dr. Ravi Bellamkonda is ready.

    “Are CNS axons being GAG’ed? Alleviating CS-GAG Mediated Inhibition of
    Spinal Cord Regeneration”

    http://www.u2fp.org/educate/

    Ravi Bellamkonda, PHD, Walter H. Coulter Dept. of Biomedical Engineering,
    Georgia Institute of Technology

    Dr. Bellamkonda’s lab focuses on peripheral nerve regeneration and interfacing, as well as overcoming the CSPG (Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan) contribution to regenerative failure in the central nervous system with immature and mature scar. He also looks at interfacing technologies that might better integrate electronics into the nervous system.

    Dr. Hans Keirstead is up.

    http://www.u2fp.org/educate/

    Hans Keirstead, PhD.
    Professor of Anatomy & Neurobiology, Professor of Neurological Surgery, RIRC


    “Stem-Cell Based Approaches to Treat Spinal Cord Injury”

    The focus of the Keirstead laboratory is the development of strategies to limit degeneration and enhance regeneration after spinal cord injury, of both axons and myelin. The laboratory is investigating strategies to reduce or eliminate the post-traumatic enlargement of spinal cord injury sites that normally occurs after traumatic injury. The laboratory is generating other cell populations that may benefit chronic spinal cord injury and other diseases of the spinal cord, and is also researching means to eliminate the glial scar that forms after spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis.

    Great to see Ravi collaborating with Nick Jeffery to take Ch'ase to injured dogs. Well done U2FP for facilitating this and ISRT for funding this!

    Great to see that the motor neuron replacement strategy is close to getting to the clinic - even if for spinal muscular atrophy.

    The final part of the presentation was also very very interesting from a chronic SCI perspective. Reprogramming the glial scar is a novel approach and if anyone can take a novel approach all the way to the clinic, Hans can!

    Jerry Silver menthod a second video of him coming online soon? And thanks for all the work posting this, has been really uplifting

    Dr. Jerry Silver, Presentation #2 is online now.

    http://www.u2fp.org/educate/

    Jerry Silver, PhD, Professor, Department of Neurosciences, Case Western Reserve University

    “Functional Regeneration Into and Well Beyond the Glial Scar”

    Dr. Silver has spent decades exploring ways to restore function after spinal cord injury. In the past two years, he and his team have achieved promising results with combinatorial strategies using chondroitinase, peptides, various cell bridging techniques, and neuronal enhancement. He believes that these strategies may very well be useful in restoring both sensory and motor function in paralyzed humans.
