The University of Technology Sydney (UTS), Professor Edgerton, SpinalCure Australia (SpinalCure) and Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) have collaborated on Project Edge to establish the first clinical neurostimulation research program outside the USA.

The flagship program in a multi-stream SCI recovery initiative, Project Edge which will sit within the new Centre for Neuroscience & Regenerative Medicine at UTS, headed by SpinalCure Fellow, Professor Bryce Vissel.

The impact of the work is expected to be profound and far reaching. A key aim of the program is to develop technologies and treatments which can become an integral part of rehabilitation programs nationwide, resulting in improved clinical, financial, and personal outcomes for people with spinal cord injury.

Hosted by Provost and Senior Vice-President UTS, Peter Booth, the special UT Speaks event featured a lecture by Professor Edgerton and a forum discussion, with panelists including special guests Kerri-Anne Kennerley and SpinalCure CEO Duncan Wallace.
