Ryan Gilbert receives NIH R01

Ryan Gilbert will receive $1.5M from NIH for his grant "Enhanced Neuroprotection Following Acute SCI Using Fibrous Materials" will be funded. The grant will allow the Gilbert group to explore the mechanisms by which electrospun fibers change astrocyte and neuron responses in vitro. Subsequently, they aim to translate these materials within animal models of spinal cord injury in consultation with neuroscientists at Ohio State.
