Martin Oudega, PhD

Professor, Physiology and PTHMS

Martin Oudega received a Ph.D. in Medical Biology from the University of Leiden, Leiden, Netherlands. Martin was a post-doctoral fellow at the University of California San Diego and the University of Miami where he focused on spinal cord injury and repair. His research interests are in understanding and optimizing the potential of cell transplants and biomaterials to promote nervous tissue repair and function recovery after spinal cord injury. The main focus of his research is on the role of inflammation and angiogenesis in cell-based nervous tissue repair. The ultimate goal of Dr. Oudega’s laboratory is to use the obtained scientific knowledge to develop clinically translatable strategies for spinal cord repair.
