Dr Granger is now Senior Research Fellow at the Royal Veterinary College where his research is based. His main research interest is around treatments for spinal cord injury in dogs, including transplantation of cells for spinal cord regeneration and repair, clinical trials for new therapies, and neuromodulation for incontinence control. He has tested unique procedures in dogs and large animal models, such as implantation of sacral neuroprostheses for incontinence control.
