SCI 2020: Launching a Decade for Disruption in Spinal Cord Injury Research

February 12-13, 2019

National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

Craig H. Neilsen Foundation


Natcher Conference Center, NIH Campus, Bethesda, Maryland


This meeting will bring together spinal cord injury (SCI) researchers and stakeholders from across the injury spectrum (basic to clinical and acute to chronic), to critically address the current state of the science and to actively debate and define the most promising and meaningful research opportunities for the next decade.

Specific goals are to encourage breakthrough collaborative approaches that will disrupt existing silos, to engage SCI consumers in understanding and prioritizing key research questions, and to define the necessary resources and mechanisms to accelerate the trajectory of SCI research from discovery to implementation.
