University of Alberta research team receives $3.3 million to create open-source database for international spinal cord injury research
The University of Alberta and the University of California, San Francisco are teaming up to launch the world’s first Open Data Commons for preclinical Spinal Cord Injury research (ODC-SCI). A consortium of international organizations will be providing $3.3 million CAD to help fund the initiative. The ODC-SCI will improve spinal cord injury research and treatment worldwide by reducing data bias and equipping scientists by making data more accessible, enhancing research and translational efforts.
Matt Wetschler was bodysurfing at Ocean Beach in San Francisco when he went for a wave and didn’t come back up. Some other surfers saw his body floating like a log and pulled him ashore.
He was lucky: an ICU nurse happened to be walking along the beach and started CPR. By the time the ambulance arrived and shocked him, he had a heartbeat again. But his injury was serious – he’d fractured two vertebrae in his neck from hyperextension.
