Reggie Edgerton joins University of Technology in Sydney Australia

SpinalCure is thrilled to announce that world-renowned neuroscientist, Professor Reggie Edgerton, will be coming to Australia to help establish a ground-breaking neurostimulation initiative for people with spinal cord injury.

The neurostimulation project will sit within the newly formed Centre for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine, which will be headed by SpinalCure Fellow and UTS Professor of Neuroscience, Prof. Bryce Vissel. The project is expected to commence in 2017 and is a collaborative effort between UTS, Professor Edgerton, SpinalCure Australia and Spinal Cord Injuries Australia.

Neurostimulation will form the flagship research stream of a world-leading spinal cord injury recovery program within the Centre. The program is anticipated to have six or more exciting, new research streams added over coming years.

We envision that fully established and funded, this will be the largest, most comprehensive effort to cure spinal cord injury in the Southern Hemisphere, leading the world to unprecedented levels of recovery for people with spinal cord injury.

Edgerton will retain his professorship at UCLA.
