Monitoring the injured spinal cord Cheung, Amanda


Amanda Cheung, a UBC 3MT Semi-Finalist, presents their research on a non-invasive sensor they developed using Near-Infrared Spectroscopy, or NIRS, to monitor oxygen levels in spinal cord tissues in real time. They hope, with further testing, this new technology will be a tool to help doctors better treat spinal cord injury. Amanda Cheung is completing their PhD in Neuroscience under the supervision of Dr. Brian Kwon and Dr. Babak Shadgan.
