Description

This proposal seeks to establish an unified basic science and clinical
facility to enhance clinical outcomes for spinal core injured subjects.
Northwestern University Medical School is the center of a major acute
spinal cord injury program, directed by Dr. Meyer. There is also a
substantial long-term rehabilitation program for spinal cord injury based
within the adjacent Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, a member hospital
of the Northwestern University Medical School. To date, the primary
research emphasis concerning spinal cord injury in these hospitals has been
on clinical care delivery and on prevention of secondary complications. It
is the objective of this P20 Center Proposal is to begin to apply new
findings from several basic science laboratories in our Institutions to
establish potential therapeutic interventions that might assist recovery
from spinal cord injury.
