Opportunity to Provide Input on SCI Research Funding

We have some great news! The NASCIC Executive Council have been asked by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to provide input from our spinal cord injured community to help chart the future of funding for spinal cord injury (SCI) research in the next decade.

We ask that if you have an SCI or are a family member or caregiver of someone with an SCI that you take the time to fill out our survey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SCI2020

This is a great opportunity for all of us to have a voice!

    As a person living with SCI I believe that asking questions to people that have a limited understanding of the SCI research scenario will lead to mislading results.
    I would say that just using common sense is better in this case. People with CHRONIC SCI want to walk out of wheelchair!
    That’s what the goal of SCI research shold be!
    Stop wasting money doing research in directions that even if successful at the end of the day will leave us paralyzed

    as much as i absolutely agree that research is about the ultimate goal of walking again i also believe in a persons right to quality of life while in a chair and there is a serious problem with human rights in this area and also a serious need for accommodation and affordable accessible housing.
