The goal of this project is to determine the role of epigenetic modifications of mitochondrial genes in the induction of the plateau phase after spinal cord injury (SCI), and to exploit these modifications to promote recovery. SCI is a devastating disorder often resulting in loss of function below the injury site. In recent years, service members have been threatened by more advanced warfare, such as improvised explosive devices, ultimately inducing more severe and complex injuries, including SC...
