4 research grants recently awarded for spine


Here are four grants awarded for spine research in the past month.

Dr. Conor Buckley, director of biomedical engineering at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland, received a $2.2 million European Research Grant to study spinal regeneration. Dr. Buckley aims to use engineering principles to better understand cell-based therapy, which could enable patients to delay undergoing an invasive spinal fusion procedure.

Researchers at the University of Victoria in Canada received a $1 million grant to boost production of 3D-printed prostheses. Nick Dechev, a mechanical engineering professor and executive director of the program, aims to fit 160 children with scoliosis braces over the next three years.

Providence, R.I.-based Brown University partnered with Intel to investigate the use of artificial intelligence to restore signals above and below spinal cord injuries. The research was made possible by a $6.3 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Xoran Technologies plans to research surgical navigation and intraoperative imaging to decrease time and enhance outcomes in minimally invasive spine procedures. A National Institutes of Health initiative will provide $4 million in research and development funds to Xoran and Decathlon Capital Partners will provide another $4 million through the Small Business Innovation Research grant.
