You are here: The Research
We are harnessing the power of science to find cures for paralysis and its effects. Here are the current main areas we are exploring and what they are helping to do. Please follow us on LinkedIn (Spinal Research) and Twitter (@SpinalResearch), for the latest research opportunities, scientific updates and conferences of note.
Our new Facebook page 'Spinal Cord Injury Research' breaks down the latest research and discusses these findings, specifically for people without a scientific background.
