Current Research Activities
Newly injured patients with SCI are invited to become part of a longitudinal national database of SCI patients. This information is used to further understanding of the long-term consequences of SCI and to develop improved treatments and systems of care. Currently the database, centered at the National SCI Statistical Center, contains information on more than 27,000 cases since 1973. This ongoing study is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
