“Functional Recovery after SCI with the use of Injectable Peptides that Counteract Inhibitory Proteoglycans”
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.
U2FP is comprised of individuals with a personal stake in advancing therapies to treat chronic SCIs and we would like for you to join our efforts and support this research. The results of this research will be reviewed by U2FP’s Scientific Advisory Board for recommendations. Meanwhile, you can support the work of this collaboration by donating to the U2FP Research Fund. Updates on how funds are spent and lab results will be published on the U2FP.org website.
