Collaborative Research Area on Central Nervous System Injury

Coordinator: Sandra Juul, M.D., Ph.D.


This CRA fosters the common interest of faculty members studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis and regeneration/recovery in a variety of acquired disease and injury states that result in IDD. The group includes investigators studying preterm birth, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, ischemia, hemorrhage, CNS infections, autoimmune diseases of the CNS, tumors, and radiation induced injury to the developing CNS. Goals of the group include developing novel means to study the CNS response to injury or infection in vivo, identifying therapeutic targets to maximize functional outcome following CNS injury, and identifying biological factors that contribute to preterm delivery.
