European Project - Piezo4Spine
Our group participates in the recently funded project Piezo4Spine. Piezo4Spine aims to develop a novel multifactorial therapy for spinal cord injury (SCI) conceived as a disruptive platform enabling unprecedented multiscale actuation to drive functional neural repair by more accurately tackling SCI complexity. By a multidisciplinary consortium combining scientific, technological,clinical and industrial partners enriched by their interdisciplinarity,we envision to overcome limitations of current technologies by tackling multiplecellular targets involved in neural regeneration after SCI with a balanced combination of therapeutic interventions able to optimally promote functional recovery. These radical science-to-technology breakthroughs could enable,if successful,novel technologies and therapies for SCI and many other neural and non-neural pathologies in which some,but not necessarily all, of these targets are involved. Gender dimension will be implemented by ensuring that findings apply to society as awhole.
