Inspiring New Thinking to Restore Function after Spinal Cord Injury: Gregoire Courtine

Published April 25, 2013 by Yassmin Elnazer


Functional restoration after SCI has been interpreted as the need to promote long-distance regeneration. More immediate strategies may exploit spared circuitries, inspiring new thinking for therapeutic designs.

Grégoire Courtine was trained in Mathematics and Physics, but received his PhD degree in Experimental Medicine. After a Post-doctoral training at the University of California (UCLA), he established his own laboratory at the university of Zurich. He recently accepted the International paraplegic foundation (IRP) chair in spinal cord repair at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL). His laboratory focuses on the development of interventions to improve recovery after spinal cord injury (SCI). He published several articles proposing radically new approaches for restoring function after SCI, which were discussed in international press extensively. He received numerous honors such as the UCLA Chancellor’s award, and the Schellenberg Prize for his advances in SCI research.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -Mark Twain
