Memorial Deadline: RIS Review not required for pre-application

External Deadline: Monday 20th, May 2024


The Spinal Cord Injury Research Program (SCIRP) released program announcements for the following funding opportunities:

  • – Clinical Trial Award
  • – Clinical Translation Research Award
  • – Translational Research Award
  • – Investigator-Initiated Research Award

To view the program announcements and submit a pre-application visit:

The SCIRP has developed a strategic plan that outlines the program’s approach to addressing critical gaps in SCI research, patient care, and quality of life. Currently, the SCIRP seeks innovative and impactful research that addresses the following strategic priorities:

  • – Preserving and protecting spinal cord tissue at time of injury for improved neurologic outcomes
  • – Identifying and validating biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis, and for evaluation of treatment efficacies
  • – Developing, testing, and validating promising interventions to address bowel, genitourinary, neuropathic pain, cardiopulmonary, or autonomic dysfunction in people with SCI **Updated for FY22**
  • – Investigating psychosocial issues relevant to people with SCI, their families, and/or their care-partners **Updated for FY22**
  • – Rehabilitation and regeneration-maximizing the function of the residual neural circuitry, including harnessing neuroplasticity and recovery to improve function after SCI
