The Spinal Cord Injury Project is the first focus of the W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience. Its mission is to conduct cutting-edge research and to build collaborations to focus resources on finding a cure for spinal cord injuries.
The Spinal Cord Injury Project works to bring together research facilities, educational institutions, training programs, government officials, and corporate entities to work together to develop new therapies and to move the most effective treatments quickly to clinical trial.
A critical force in accelerating the pace of research is the involvement of those who are spinal cord injured and their families. The Spinal Cord Injury Project provides many programs and services for this community to keep them informed on issues of health, the latest in spinal cord injury research, and in ways that they can work to move the field forward.
TEAM SCIPROJECT: COMMITTED TO FINDING A CURE!
Please join us in raising funds for The Spinal Cord Injury Project at Rutgers! Founded by world-renown neuroscientist Dr. Wise Young, the SCIProject focuses on cutting-edge research and launching clinical trials to bring effective treatments to people who are paralyzed.
The Spinal Cord Injury Project collaborates with research facilities, corporations, veterans organizations, and governments throughout the world with one focus: developing new approaches to curing spinal cord injuries. We also work closely with people who are injured and their families through our CareCure website, monthly Open House programs, eBulletins, and other resources.
