Enhancing Respiratory Motor Function after Spinal Cord Injury

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

PROJECT NARRATIVE Spinal cord injury is a devastating problem that affects about 300,000 people in the United States, with 17,000 new cases each year. The diaphragm muscle is the most important inspiratory muscle and it is paralyzed or seriously impaired in many cases of spinal cord injury. The proposed studies will use exciting, new information on the mechanisms underlying recovery of respiratory function to explore the development of novel therapies for patients with spinal cord injury.
