Graduate Student Position with the Bennett Lab: Spinal Cord Research

Dr. Bennett’s laboratory examines the spinal cord after injury, with the objective of trying to understand and enhance recovery of motor function after spinal cord injury. Using humans and animal models of spinal cord injury, his group examines changes in channels and receptors in neurons that control muscles below the injury, and examines optogenetic and pharmacological methods to compensate for loss of injured neurons and connections. The results are directly applicable to promoting recovery of locomotor function and treatment of unwanted spasticity in humans after spinal cord injury.
