The Center for Brain and Spinal Cord Repair at The Ohio State University announces that we are currently accepting applications for our annual NINDS-funded Spinal Cord Injury Training Program, which will take place May 05-24, 2013.
This is a 3-week comprehensive hands-on program in experimental spinal cord injury (SCI). Training will be provided in:
(1) cervical and thoracic SCI modeling,
(2) acute/chronic animal care (rats & mice),
(3) outcomes assessment of injured animals and SCI tissue (behavior, histopathology, image analysis),
(4) intrathecal catheterization and intraspinal microinjection and
(5) clinical perspectives in SCI.
Options for specialized training include:
(1) mouse laminectomy/SCI,
(2) mouse locomotor analysis (BMS),
(3) anatomical tract tracing,
(5) advanced behavioral analysis and
(6) rat electromyography.
NINDS has provided significant support to reduce curricular, travel and room/board expenses. Partial scholarships are available based on need. Additional details and application forms are available via the web at http://sci.osu.edu/
