Genetics of Spine Disease and Spinal Regeneration

The Neuro-Informatics Laboratory studies the genetic underpinnings of spinal nerve disease with a goal of establishing new treatments that may utilize genetic or stem cell interventions to slow down or reverse degeneration or enhance regeneration as they relate to disease of the intervertebral disk, facet joint and spinal cord.

Our collaborators in the Center for Individualized Medicine and the Center and the Center for Regenerative Medicine provide us with unprecedented resources in the realm of genetic and regenerative medicine.
