The local environment after spinal cord injury does not support regeneration. However, the physical and chemical structures of biomaterial implants can be engineered to interface with native tissue in a way that supports regeneration. At the same time, implants can be designed to deliver potent biological therapies, such as genetic vectors and stem cells. The Seidlits lab is working to develop such combinational approaches to achieve functional repair of spinal cord tissue.
