Research 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 research infrastructure. In addition, we work to coordinate and promote rehabilitation research through collaborations with other NIH Institutes, federal partners, and through public-private partnerships.
