Scientific Executive Board
SCF’s Scientific Executive Board is comprised of world-class scientists who are keenly interested in and dedicated to the Foundation’s core mission. Board members collaborate actively with other experts world-wide to discover novel ideas that have potential to be translated into treatments to reverse paralysis. Novel strategies for reversing paralysis will be tested in clinically-relevant chronic injury animal models through multi-center, international pre-clinical trials. Promising therapies, once validated in animal models, will be brought forward promptly for international human clinical trials.
