As a post-doctoral associate at The Schmidt Lab at the University of Florida, Dr. Young Hye Song is working on utilizing naturally-derived biomaterials to develop in vitro disease models and create scaffolds that can be used for nerve repair. She discusses the types of biomaterials being used and the way they are produced, the difference between nerve regeneration in the central versus peripheral nervous system, the process of desterilizing peripheral nerves to create injectable hydrogels for the treatment of spinal cord injuries, when this method of repair may be tested on humans, challenges inherent in this approach to spinal cord injury repair, and so much more.
