Spinal Cord Injury Research


We aim to partner with persons with spinal cord injury, their families, caregivers, and health professionals to do research that is relevant to their needs and interests. We focus on all these needs by providing excellent clinical care and high quality and cutting edge research that improves people's lives.

True to our our history as a Spinal Cord Injury Model System, we collaborate and partner with many internal and external institutions and organizations through research and education, in order to bring the best care possible to those with spinal cord injuries.
