Program & Program Areas

The NCMRR mission is to foster the development of scientific knowledge needed to enhance the health, productivity, independence, and quality-of-life for people with physical disabilities across the lifespan. We support research directly through research grants, training and career development activities, small business and technology grants, and by enhancing research infrastructure. In addition, the Center works to coordinate and promote rehabilitation research through collaborations with other NIH Institutes, federal partners, and public-private partnerships. Some of the Center's priorities are included below.
