Supporting the wide array of research possibilities and opportunities, with the Spinal Cord Injury Research on the Translational Spectrum (SCIRTS) portfolio, we seek to improve the understanding of traumatic spinal cord injury and develop new approaches to alleviate the dysfunction and complications that follow.
This broad portfolio encourages limitless creativity and leadership in research and recognizes the encompassing mechanistic, preclinical modeling, translational, and/or clinical research.
Two-year Postdoctoral Fellowships encourage early-career training and specialization in the field of spinal cord injury research.
Pilot Research Grants
Two-year Pilot Research Grants help to establish new investigators in the field of spinal cord injury research and assume the risk inherent when established investigators undertake new directions in their work. These grants cultivate new lines of research, help move work across the translational spectrum and generate essential preliminary data.
Senior Research Grants
Three-year Senior Research Grants encourage senior-level investigators to expand the scope of their work into new directions through targeted studies with high potential to move the field forward. These grants are intended to encourage investigators to open new areas of research, fill gaps in the spinal cord injury field, and test cutting-edge ideas and approaches.
