We are a group of scientists in the Department of Neurosciences at the University of California San Diego. Using genetically modified mice, we study why axons in the central nervous system (the brain and the spinal cord) have such a limited ability to regenerate following injury. The insight gained from our research is directly relevant to the design of therapeutic interventions for spinal cord injury, white matter stroke and certain neurodegenerative disorders.
