Raine Lecture: Professor Giles Plant : Human corticospinal motor neuron relay grafts for treatment of cervical spinal cord injury Other events...
Professor Giles Plant obtained his PhD degree from The University of Western Australia and is now Basic Science Director of the Stanford Partnership for Spinal Cord Injury and Repair in the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University. The aim of Giles' research is to elucidate new cellular and molecular repair strategies to improve functional and anatomical outcomes following spinal cord injury (SCI). Current research areas include examining the efficacy of human neural stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cell (iPS) lines to improve functional outcomes in cervical SCI and assessing the capacity of adult and embryonic olfactory glia to induce axonal regeneration and myelination in the injured and demyelinated CNS. This research utilises spinal cord contusion injury modeling and behavioral assessments using forelimb and hindlimb tests as well as a variety of molecular and cellular techniques to assess the results of stem and glial cell spinal transplantation.
