As part of our ongoing commitment to improving global collaboration in the field of spinal cord injury (SCI) research, we have launched a Mentor Pilot Program that will match senior SCI researchers with SCI Early Career Researchers. The pilot program will provide leadership, guidance and networking opportunities for both the mentor and mentee.
The SRI sees global multi-centre research collaboration as a crucial element in the future of spinal cord research. While SCoRH is a large part of the work that we do to enhance research collaboration, we are also working to make some of those connections happen ‘in person’. Read more
On 12 September 2018 we proudly launched the Spinal Cord Research Hub (SCoRH) in Sydney, Australia to a packed room of international and local spinal cord researchers, people living with spinal cord injury, physicians, clinicians, colleagues in industry, as well as SRI supporters. Read more
