V. Reggie Edgerton, PhD

Dr. Edgerton is with UCLA Department of Neurosurgery and is the recipient of The Translation Award that funds projects that aim to translate research from animal experiments toward human clinical trials. Dr. Edgerton aims to address one of the most important quality-of-life issues for people with spinal-cord injury by enhancing bladder functions. This novel, noninvasive spinal-cord stimulation strategy will help manage a healthy lower urinary track, preserve kidney function and promote timely emptying of the bladder.
