Grant Awarded for Cellular and molecular signatures of successful CNS regeneration
The Brotman Baty Institute has awarded a 2021 Catalytic Collaborations grant for the proposal Cellular and Molecular Signatures of Successful CNS Regeneration. This proposal brings two BBI members, Dr. Khaing (UW) and Dr. Millen (SCRI), with post-doc Dr Tran Hartman (SCRI), to define pro-regenerative factors driving spinal cord regeneration. These experiments will identify cellular and molecular pro-generative mechanisms that evolved in a mammalian system. This work will serve as the foundational basis to identify new mechanisms for regeneration to investigate novel therapeutic strategies in mice, and eventually, humans.
