FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) - On Thursday, April 25 Wright State University will break ground on the construction of the Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration Building, a state-of-the-art facility.
WSU officials said It is a direct partnership between the public and private sectors that will bring together our area's most advanced research and clinical resources.
Wright State is partnering with Premier Health Neuroscience Institute to break new ground in treating brain, spinal cord and nerve injuries.
WSU experts said one million Americans suffer from some traumatic nerve injury every year... everyone from soldiers to athletes to car accident victims.
Several organizations have placed their backing in the new project.
Last month, Wright State won a 4.6 million dollar National Institutes of Health grant aimed at improving the movement of badly injured limbs.
The new facility also builds upon a 4 point 8 million dollar grant that was given in 2007 to identify why limbs still don't work even after the nerves have regrown after injury.
Completion is anticipated for the fall of 2015.
