Accelerating Nerve Regeneration with Therapeutic Electrical Stimulation and Botulinum Toxin

Project: Research project

Project Details


The scope of work to be completed at Northwestern University includes nerve injury and repair surgeries (Aims 1 and 2) performed a postdoc from Dr. Franz’s lab under the supervision of Dr. Franz, NU Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and his co-investigator, Dr. Sumanas Jordan, from the NU Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The animal work will take place within the NU Center for Comparative Medicine (Chicago campus) and Dr. Franz’s space in the Tarry Building.
