Growth of Axons

Georgia Tech Ph.D. student Nassir Mokarram (left) and Professor Ravi Bellamkonda examine microscope images showing the growth of axons (red) and Schwann cells (green) in nerve guides that released interleukin 4 (IL-4).  The Bellamkonda group is altering the activity of macrophage cells to increase the rate at which nerve processes re-grow.
