The vision of the SCIRP is to advance the treatment and management of SCI and ameliorate its consequences relevant to injured Service Members. The FY23 SCIRP challenges the scientific community to design research that will advance the development or translation of healthcare solutions for people living with SCI. Innovative research that fosters new directions or addresses neglected issues in the field of traumatic SCI is also supported. The SCIRP encourages impactful research across the continuum of care from time of injury and across the lifespan that is well reasoned and scientifically supported.
