Neuroscience and Experimental Therapeutics Updates: July 2017

Michelle Hook, Ph.D.

Grants funded

  • Gillson-Longenbaugh Foundation, Psychological wellbeing in a rodent model of spinal cord injury, $20,000

Seminars presented

  • 6/21/2017, Assessing Depression in a Rodent Model of Spinal Cord Injury, Hiroshima, Japan
    • International Behavioral Neuroscience Society Meeting
    • Discussed paradigm that we developed in rodent model, and the effects we have seen at molecular, behavioral and physiological levels
  • 7/12/2017, Acute SCI and the Therapeutic Window: Are We Chasing Realistic Targets?, Snowbird, Utah
    • National Neurotrauma Society
    • Discussed factors that may contribute to the failure of clinical trials and how we may improve basic science approaches to increase the successful translation from the bend to the bedside
