Faculty Leadership in the Sciences

STU Biology Professor publishes a third paper from United States Department of Defense (DOD) funded spinal cord injury project.

Dr. Jeffery Plunkett, from the School of Science, recently published the third of four articles entitled “Temporal profile of endogenous anatomical and functional recovery following spinal cord injury in adult zebrafish." The work will appear in a leading scientific journal on August 26th. This article highlights the work of the collaborative effort between the Plunkett Laboratory at St. Thomas University and the Laboratory of Dr. Martin Oudega at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine. 

Another example of collaborative excellence in the science program at STU.
