Spinal cord: circuits and regeneration

Spinal injury is produced by traumatic and nontraumatic causes that often induce long-term disability. This research line investigates the pathological processes responsible for cell loss in the spinal cord.

Nanostructured bio-synthetic scaffolds and spinal networks

This project aims to exploit new concepts to obtain biomaterials for nerve tissue engineering. The goal is to develop a new generation of multifunctional implantable materials targeted to the treatment/repair of spinal cord lesion (Laura Ballerini's lab) »


Neurophysiology and neuropharmacology of the spinal cord

The main scientific goal is to identify new experimental strategies to activate the CPG, in a perspective to propose new therapeutic interventions for the functional recovery of standing posture and deambulation after spinal cord injury»
