Welcome to the Spinal Research Institute (ABN 11 162 207 169) (‘Publisher’).

Our mission is to build research collaboration and consumer engagement and to improve the lives of people with spinal cord injury. We encourage the sharing of information by researchers about their research studies and clinical trials.

The Spinal Cord Research Hub (‘SCoRH Platform’) is a free to join online platform uniting the international spinal cord research sector and enables researchers, clinicians, people living with spinal cord injury and funders to connect, share and collaborate through the online space.

Publisher enables access to online information and research about spinal cord injury through our website, the SCoRH Platform, electronic bulletins, digital publications (including Why Research Matters), articles, e-newsletters, SRI social media (including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter), YouTube videos, live and recorded webinars/videos and other online resources (‘Digital Content’). Digital Content includes authored content and also summaries or a précis of authored content created by Publisher or made available by the Publisher.
