The Spinal Cord Injury Network was pleased to launch a brochure compiling competitive research funded by the NSW Government’s Spinal Cord Injury and Related Neurological Conditions Program on 28th February 2012.

The Research Showcase brochure outlines research conducted as part of the 2004 Program Grants, 2005 Project Grants, 2009 Career Development Fellowships, 2011 Paul Brock Fellowships for Cross Disciplinary Research, 2011 Applied Spinal Cord Injury Research Fellowships, and travels undertaken by recipients of the 2009 Travel Awards.

More than 56 people attended a Research Showcase event at the NSW Trade and Investment Centre in Sydney.

Acting Director of the NSW Office for Medical Research Dr Tony Penna opened the meeting and congratulated the researchers on their achievements.

The Fund has supported 21 researchers working on spinal cord injury, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis.  

The research has resulted in 170 articles in peer-reviewed journals with many manuscripts in preparation, two books, 13 chapters in books, 262 national and international presentations and 77 national and international collaborations. The Program also helped to train 79 Honours, MSc and PhD students, and mentored 35 Postdoctoral Fellows.
