Description: As a Summer Research Fellow between my first and second years of medical school, I worked with Dr. Kieth Tansey on two projects. The first project evaluated intersegmental spinal reflexes after contusion injury to the spinal cord. My role was to assist in animal preparation and testing, to analyze data, and to harvest pathological specimens. The second project was to test a robot locomotor device designed to evaluate stepping recovery in rats with spinal cord injury.
