The Reeve Foundation's research programs are developing and delivering treatments and cures for spinal cord injury.
By tweaking a single gene, a group of scientists reprogramed nervous system support cells called astrocytes in the spinal cords of living mice to become new nerve cells. This research opens the tantalizing possibility that spinal cord cell replacement and repair might be accomplished not by transplanting outside stem cells but by manipulating existing cells to take on new identities.
