Timothy Dale Faw
Medical Instructor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

I am a Medical Instructor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Division with training as a neuroscientist and physical therapist. My translational research investigates the neurobiology of spinal cord injury (SCI) and recovery, including novel interventions to improve outcomes after SCI. To do this, I utilize small animal models of clinically-relevant SCI alongside clinical trials in human participants with SCI. I am specifically interested in the roles of neuroinflammation and rehabilitation in motor learning, myelin plasticity, and recovery of motor function after SCI.
