Speech Title: The importance of of the age factor   after Spinal Cord Injury

About the speaker:

After obtaining his BS from the University of Sciences of Montpellier, France (Cellular biology and Animal physiology), Cédric graduated as an Engineer in Biotechnology (MSc) from the College of Engineering, Applied Biology and Microbiology at Luminy (Polytech Marseille, former ESIL), Marseille, France. He then obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge, UK, where he studied stem cells and transcription factors with Dr. Olivier Raineteau, at the Brain Repair Centre. He then moved to the Department of Neurosciences, University of California San Diego, USA, in the laboratory of Dr. Binhai Zheng. There, he worked on understanding how neuronal intrinsic and extrinsic molecules can modulate axon growth and functional recovery after spinal cord injury. In his lab, he continues to work on understanding the complexity of spinal cord injury, with the goal to find strategies to promote locomotor functional recovery and reduce SCI-associated health complications.
