This research project aims at maturing a novel technology for the treatment of spinal cord injury, namely the implantation of bio-functionalised electroconducting microfibers to promote guided neural regeneration across the lesion. It is funded by the European Commission under the H2020-FETPROACT-01-2016 call in the topic bio-electronic medicines and therapies. The project will span four years (2017-2020) and will develop and test an advanced, microfiber-based electroactive implant to repair the spinal cord in rodents and pigs. The microfibres will have a dual neurobiological function, namely providing localised electrical microstimulation to neural cells, as well as a biocompatible, aligned micro-scaffolding with anchored biomolecules for directing neural cell growth. A trans-disciplinary consortium of seven European research institutions will join efforts to accomplish this challenging goal.
