Unite 2 Fight Paralysis
The leading non profit organization that brings research scientists, practitioners, investors, SCI survivors and family members together for an annual conference (W2W), continuing to foster knowledge, collaboration and power for all of the stakeholders committed to achieving a cure for spinal cord injury.
Motor paralysis from stroke or spinal cord injury can be severe and long-lasting, despite damage to a relatively small area of the nervous system. Our goal is to develop neuroprosthetic devices capable of bypassing these damaged areas and restoring volitional control of movement to paralyzed limbs. Located at University of Washington in Seattle.
Bedford Stemcell Research Foundation
The Spinal Workshop brings together the three key areas: Neurosurgery, Neurology, and Basic Science to identify the remaining barriers to cure.
Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation
The Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation’s (BRPF) goal is to find a cure for paralysis through funding the latest in medical research and to provide assistance to those that suffer from neurological disorders. This research not only benefits spinal cord injuries but also stroke victims, people diagnosed with ALS, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders.
The DiDonato Paralysis Foundation
The DiDonato Paralysis Foundation’s (DPF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for spinal cord injury research. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for individuals living with paralysis and other neurological disorders by helping to fund SCI research.
The Michael J Fox Foundation
The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.
The Morton Cure Paralysis Fund
The Morton Cure Paralysis Fund (MCPF) is committed to developing effective therapies (cures) for paralysis associated with spinal cord injury and other disorders of the central nervous system.
Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) Research Foundation
The PVA Research Foundation supports innovative research and fellowships that improve the lives of those with spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D).
Roman Reed Research Program / Reeve-Irvine Research Center
Critical preliminary studies carried out at the Roman Reed Core Laboratory provide data to support applications to other funding sources.
Shirley Ryan Ability Lab / Center for Rehabilitation Outcome Research
The Center for Rehabilitation Outcomes Research (CROR) at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) is a national leader in assessing the long term impact of rehabilitation on individuals with disabilities.
Spinal Research’s vision is a world free of the permanence of paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.
United Paralysis Foundation
The United Paralysis Foundation’s primary mission is to fund aggressive research aimed at finding a cure for chronic spinal cord injuries (SCI).
