Capital Region sites get $1.5M for spinal-cord research

By Claire Hughes

More than $1.5 million in state research grants will go to Capital Region institutions working on treatments for spinal cord injuries, according to an announcement from the governor’s office Monday.

The state announced a total of $5.7 million to be distributed in two- and three-year grants for nine spinal cord research projects statewide, with the bulk going to downstate institutions.

The Regenerative Research Foundation in Rensselaer, an affiliate of the Neural Stem Cell Institute, will receive nearly one-fifth of the funds, or almost $1.1 million, for work aimed at promoting spinal cord regeneration after injury.
