Texas A&M Biologist Jennifer Dulin Finds Niche in Aggieland, Spinal Cord Injury Research

Feb 28, 2020
"Spinal cord injury is a terrible event that devastates the lives of affected individuals and their loved ones, and there are zero effective treatments that can preserve or improve neurological function following injury. Additionally, we still don’t have a great understanding of how the miswiring of injured spinal circuits results in consequences such as paralysis, pain and autonomic dysfunction. Because of this, there is a huge need to gain a better understanding of what goes wrong after injury in order to develop more powerful therapeutic approaches. This urgent need is what drives my commitment to spinal cord injury research.”
