Research

Mission

Our mission is to design innovative interventions to restore sensorimotor functions after CNS disorders, especially spinal cord injury, and to translate our findings into effective clinical applications capable of improving the quality of life of people with neuromotor impairments.

To achieve this goal

We are developing multifaceted neuroprosthetic systems, robotic interfaces, and advanced neurorehabilitation procedures that we combine with neuroregenerative interventions. Using genetically modified mice, optogenetics, and novel viral tools, we also seek to uncover the neural mechanisms underlying the control of locomotion in intact animals, as well as the processes that reestablish motor functions after neuromotor disorders
