Special Emphasis Networks
Our Special Emphasis Network is a major initiative with the aim to bring together a community of academic and clinical expertise and resources to tackle currently unmet priority needs for people with spinal cord injury.
We think the most effective way to progress the research into spinal cord injury is for researchers to work together and share findings.
The strategic aims of this programme are
- support collaborative, multi-disciplinary patient focused research
- bring together expertise in the UK - building capacity to deliver results
- build commercial and strategic alliances and partnerships
- establish clinical trials capacity in the UK
Spinal Research is committed to developing treatments to restore arm, hand and pelvic function. Our research has shown these goals are now achievable and the next step is to take these promising treatments to patients via clinical trials. Accomplishing this will have a dramatic impact on the dignity, independence, personal freedom and full participation in society of people with a spinal cord injury.
