A cure for chronic pain

Posted on May 20, 2015

Brian Amsden (Chemical Engineering) has received a $1.6 million Collaborative Research and Training Experience Program (CREATE) grant from the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) for his research into soft tissue repair and regeneration.

Dr. Amsden and his research collaborators are focusing on regenerative treatments of chronic diseases that limit mobility by using stem cells combined with polymers to regenerate ligaments, cartilage and the nucleus pulposus region (inner core) of the intervertebral discs in the spine.
