Our guest this week is Jennifer Kraft. Jenny suffered a spinal cord injury in a bicycling accident which left her paralyzed. Spinal cord injury (SCI) results in loss of nervous tissue and consequently loss of motor and sensory function. There is no treatment available that restores the injury-induced loss of function to a degree that an independent life can be guaranteed. Transplantation of stem cells or progenitors may support spinal cord repair. (https://bit.ly/2VBV9rC)
