Resource:Spinal Research

Name: Resource:Spinal Research
Description:

Spinal Research is committed to funding the highest quality international research into a cure for spinal cord paralysis. They support both basic science and clinical research and aim to increase research capacity by encouraging talented young graduates into the field through their PhD studentships.
Spinal Research funds studies in the most promising areas of research. With their funding, scientists have shown that each of tested approaches can regenerate damaged neurons in the spinal cord and has the potential to restore meaningful function to an injured patient. It is important that research continues in each area, because, as yet, no one knows which is likely to be the most successful. In fact, a combination of approaches is likely to be most effective.
Research may be centered at the bench but to be productive requires collaboration and a healthy exchange of ideas. ISRT facilitates this by bringing our scientists together every year at their Annual Network Meetings, the first in this field, and publish an Annual Research Review a compilation of reports from their grant holders documenting their most recent developments.
ISRT continually encourages international cooperation of effort and as a founding member of the ICCP (International Campaign for Cures of spinal cord injury Paralysis), ISRT has been instrumental in bringing essential guidelines on the conduct of safe and effective clinical trials for spinal cord injury.

The Trust boasts an internationally-recognized Scientific Committee who guide their scientific strategy and preside over a peer-review process that ensures awards are made only to the highest quality research projects. Spinal Research recognizes that for complex multisystem diseases and pathologies, such as spinal cord injury, it is sometimes necessary to use animals as part of the overall research endeavor. However, Spinal Research is aware of the responsibility that this places on it to ensure, whenever possible, alternatives to the use of animals are explored. All laboratories must hold a certificate issued by the Home Office and have gained approval for their work from a local ethical and animal welfare committee before any work involving the use of animals is permitted.
