“Neural Repair of Cauda Equina and Conus Medullaris Forms of Spinal Cord Injury”
Dr. Havton is a physician-scientist, who is working in the research fields of spinal cord injury and repair, pain and stem cell science. His laboratory performs translational research and has special interests in developing new treatments for cauda equine and conus medullaris forms of spinal cord injuries. These injuries affect the sacral portion of the spinal cord and associated lumbosacral nerve roots. His laboratory studies a combination of motor autonomic and sensory function, including neuropathic and visceral pain, in clinically relevant experimental models.
