Mission statement

Spinal Research’s vision is a world free of the permanence of paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.

We are working towards this goal by:

  • Funding pioneering research across the world
  • Promoting collaboration between organisations concerned with spinal cord injury paralysis through membership of the ICCP (International Campaign for Cures of Spinal Injury Paralysis)
  • Facilitating the dissemination of research information via our Research Network and associated meetings
  • Attracting the brightest students to enter this field of research through our Nathalie Rose Barr PhD scholarships and our annual Summer School in Neurotrauma
  • Campaigning for greater awareness of spinal cord injury
  • Maintaining the highest standards of governance in the organisation and administration of the charity

We believe that, with everybody’s help, paralysis can be beaten.
