Project Description

Our lab focuses on tissue engineering methods to improve nerve regeneration. Undergraduates working on these projects have focused on material or cellular aspects, depending on interest and skill. We work both in vivo and in vitro, on optic and peripheral nerve, and both neural and embryonic stem cells. The projects overall investigate how to better understand how the extracellular environment regulates regeneration. Please see our website for further information (http://uakron.edu/u/mte).
