“Regenerating Functions that Mediate Motor Function after Spinal Cord Injury”
Dr. Steward’s research focuses on how nerve cells create and maintain their connections with each other, how these “synapses” are modified by experience and injury, and what genes play a role in nerve cell regeneration, growth and function. At Working 2 Walk, Dr. Steward explained the current status of RIRC’s and other labs’ work with PTEN and SOCS3 as a means of spurring regeneration.
