Numerous stem cells therapies have been studied for the replacement of damaged neurons due to spinal cord injury. Our laboratory’s goal is to design an implantable platform for spinal cord neuron (SCN) proliferation and differentiation in order to replace damaged neurons in the injured spinal cord. Based on previous literature, we suspect we can promote neuronal precursor cell (NPC) proliferation and differentiation utilizing elastic matrices.
