Plastic Surgery Research
Basic Science Research
The laboratory of Dr. Ji-Geng Yan works collaboratively with other Medical College of Wisconsin clinical and basic science departments as well as other U.S. and international institutions to address issues such as treatment of vibration injury and nerve transfer. The laboratory is also active in fMRI research.
Dr. Gwendolyn Hoben’s laboratory also has a focus in peripheral nerve research. Small animal models are used to study mechanisms behind chronic neuropathic pain with a particular focus on amputee- related pain. In collaboration with Department of Neurosurgery and the Zablocki VA Hospital, they are studying immunomodulation and peripheral nerve regeneration.
