April 20th | 10:00am – 11:00am  

Acuff Auditorium (MA217) – School of Medicine


Join us for “Rebuild neural circuits for spinal cord injury " a keynote presentation by Dr. Wei Wu, School of Medicine – Pathology, MizzouForward faculty candidate.  Dr. Wu will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.


Dr. Wei Wu is a Research Assistant Professor at Indiana University-School of Medicine, Neuroscience.  Dr. Wu obtained his medical degree from Jiangxi Medical College in Nanchang, China , his Ph.D. (co-training program) in Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University and his Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine, Shanghai China.


The overarching theme of Dr. Wu’s research is the modulation and generation of neural circuitries in the central nervous system (CNS) for the functional recovery after spinal cord injury (SCI). His research interest is to develop therapeutic strategies by protecting, regulating, and inducing new neural circuitries in the CNS for the treatment of spinal cord injury.
