About This Project
Medical treatments for spinal cord injuries are expensive and difficult to test. I want to try to develop a prototype to regenerate damaged spinal cord tissue using a cheap and patient-specific 3D-printed device. This would combine affordable materials and stem cells to help pateints suffering from paralysis and other spinal problems.
