Novel ChABC formulation with machine learning-guided automation
​ ​ Invention Summary: Spinal cord injury (SCI) leads to the formation of scar tissue. The scarring leads to the toughening of the extracellular matrix, or the cellular environment. One of the major concerns of SCI is the prevention of neuronal connection recovery, which can lead to paralysis or reduced control of the nervous system. For...

New Cell Therapy Strategy for Treatment of Spinal Cord Injuries
Cell therapy strategy for spinal cord injuries and regenerative diseases. Invention Summary: Spinal cord injuries (SCI) are damages to the spinal cord neural tissues that cause sensory loss and motor paralysis. SCI patients have no options for curative therapy. Thus, a mild contusion to the spinal cord results in massive neuronal and glial cell...
