The Consortium Advisory Panel is appointed by the Reeve Foundation and reports to the Research Planning Committee of the Board. Members provide critique and commentary on the International Research Consortium on Spinal Cord Injury objectives, research plans and accomplishments.
They help set direction and goals for the network, particularly in response to progress made or scientific problems that have arisen; and they offer guidance in those instances where Consortium investigators grapple with scientific conundrums. Importantly, together the members bring both clinical and basic science expertise to the network, crucial perspectives for the discussions and research within the Consortium.
