 Nanoparticles foster regenerative healing process after spinal cord injury
 
Nanoparticles foster regenerative healing process after spinal cord injuryParalyzing damage in spinal cord injury is often caused by the zealous immune response to the injury. NIBIB-funded engineers have developed nanoparticles that lure immune cells away from the spinal cord, allowing regeneration that restored spinal cord function in mice.
