Research Initiatives

Spinal cord injury is a catatrophic event that often occurs in children and young adults, causing lifelong disability.  Recovery after spinal cord injury depends on a balance between pro- and anti-regenerative forces, and research in the Brown lab is aimed at identifying and testing strategies to tip the balance towards productive healing.  Their research program includes anti-inflammatory strategies, cellular therapies, and gene therapies designed to harness the good part of the body's response to spinal cord injury while limiting the bad parts of this natural response to injury.
