Dr. Thrasher Featured in The Daily Cougar

HHP faculty Dr. Adam Thrasher's research on Spinal cord injuries was featured in The Daily Cougar on July, 10th 2007.

"My overall research agenda is to develop new technology that can benefit the rehabilitation of people with severe motor disorders, such as spinal cord injuries, stroke and multiple sclerosis," Thrasher said.
