A new multidisciplinary, multinational team composed of prominent BCREGMED Scientists—aptly named Mend the Gap—is working on a novel approach that may help people with SCI.

The Mend the Gap team, which includes iCORD researchers Drs. Wolfram Tetzlaff, Brian Kwon, Dena Shahriari, Michael Berger, Corree Laule, Babak Shadgan, and Stephanie Willerth, recently received $24 million from Canada’s New Frontiers in Research Fund 2020 Transformation stream to investigate using biomaterials—and soft gels in particular—to heal the injury.

Congratulations to everyone, and we look forward to seeing progress in this important area!
