The Fouad Lab

Dr. Karim Fouad's laboratory investigates spinal cord injury with the goal to restore or improve functional recovery. 
The underlying mechanisms for this lie in the ability of spared and injured circuitries of the central nervous system to rearrange, generally termed as plasticity. 

We are focused on improving function by harvesting this plasticity

Located in Corbett Hall, we are part of the Department of Physical Therapy of the University of Alberta, Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine
