Current projects working under Dr. John Gensel focus on elucidating how age affects spinal cord injury and repair, with an emphasis on age-dependent increases in inflammatory-derived reactive oxygen species production and decreased anti-oxidant defense. We hope to identify how age mediates these deleterious effects on SCI and identify tailored therapeutic strategies to improve functional outcomes.
