Developing an olfactory cell therapy for spinal cord injury


@ Griffith University, Queensland, Australia

the spinal injury project (SIP)

The SIP team with Perry Cross


The Spinal Injury Project is a group of thirty-five scientists, engineers, medical doctors, veterinarians and educators all working together at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia developing an olfactory cell therapy for spinal cord injury (SCI). Our therapy involves the transplantation of Olfactory Ensheathing Cells (OECs) - a type of glial cell, into the spinal cord to help the guidance and regrowth of neurons across the injury site. The Spinal Injury Project team is part of the Clem Jones Centre for Neurobiology and Stem Cell Research at Griffith University.


Our lab is based at Griffith University, Nathan Campus in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia at the Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery (GRIDD). 


 Our lab is also based at Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus, Queensland, Australia at the Menzies Health Institute Queensland (MHIQ), Griffith Health Centre.
