We are excited to announce that the SRI has been successful in securing a significant grant from the IOOF Foundation. The two year grant will help fund our Consumer Engagement Program, which aims to actively engage people with spinal cord injury in the research process, to co-create and co-design research trials that achieve better health outcomes.
“I am pleased to announce that we will be continuing our support of the SRI. Together with the IOOF Foundation Directors and Foundation Manager, Trish Briggs, I look forward to working with the SRI over the next few years to realise the positive impact this project will have on the health of people living with spinal cord injury,” said Angie Dickschen, Chair IOOF Foundation.
This grant follows on from the IOOF Foundation’s support to develop the Spinal Cord Research Hub (SCoRH), the SRI’s online research collaboration platform. Launched 12 months ago, SCoRH is enabling global collaboration and knowledge sharing among researchers and clinicians, and helping drive improved clinical research outcomes.
