Michael Lane completed his PhD at the University of Melbourne in Australia. After completing postdoctoral training at the Universities of Melbourne and Florida, he accepted a tenure-track position with the Spinal Cord Research Center at Drexel University, College of Medicine to continue his ongoing research into spinal cord injury, neuroplasticity and strategies to optimize lasting functional recovery.
Tatiana Bezdudnaya earned her PhD degreeat the Research Institute for Neurocybernetics at Rostov State University in Russia. With an initial research focus on the somatosensory (whisker) and visual systems, she gained extensive training in electrophysiology and neuroanatomy. In late 2013, she shifted her focus to respiration and neuroplasticity following cervical spinal cord injury. Her ongoing research is exploring the benefits and limitations of spontaneous neuroplastic changes at spinal and supraspinal levels after cervical spinal cord injury, and developing targeted therapeutic strategies to optimize long-term recovery.

Neuroscience Camp for High School Students
Drexel University College of Medicine holds a summer camp for highly motivated current high school juniors and sophomores who are enrolled in an academic curriculum and demonstrate strong interest in neuroscience topics and research. The Camp teaches students neuroscience and offers the opportunity to gain hand-on experience with ongoing research.
Each year, a group of students works with the Lane Lab research team on a spinal cord injury research project
