The Northwest Regional Spinal Cord Injury System (NWRSCIS), centered within the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at University of Washington Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center, is one of only 14 model spinal cord injury (SCI) centers funded by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) for the 2011-2016 grant cycle. Our NIDRR project number is H133N110009.

The mission of the NWRSCIS is to improve the lives of people with SCI through excellent patient care, research and education. Consequently, the NWRSCIS strives to provide specialized care to persons with SCI, to conduct clinically relevant research and to disseminate the most useful, evidence-based information to people with SCI, their families and professionals.
