Expertise: Spinal cord
Dr Xuenong Bo
My research mainly focuses on promoting axonal regeneration after spinal cord injury. One line of my research is to manipulate the molecules in neurons and glial cells using gene-targeting techniques to change the neurons' regeneration capacity or to modify the environment in the central nervous system to facilitate axonal regeneration. The second line of research is to genetically modify Schwann cells to improve their survival and migration after transplantation into injured spinal cords. The third line of research is to study the roles of purinoceptors in the pathophysiological mechanisms of nerve injury and to develop new treatments for nerve injury.
