Recently, researchers have investigated a nerve repair process that could potentially be activated to heal injuries to the brain and spinal cord. This discovery came from investigating an existing peripheral nerve regeneration pathway and applying similar concepts to central nervous system cells. This research team was led by Claire Jacob, Professor at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and at the Swiss University of Fribourg. Their findings were published in a recent edition of Cell Reports.
