Our Approach to Research

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is dedicated to developing real-world treatments for people living with spinal cord injury (SCI) and paralysis. Decade by decade, the Reeve Foundation has worked to change what was deemed possible, collaborating with equally determined scientists and labs to map a path toward progress and build a vibrant research field that delivers real improvements for people living with paralysis. Today, as 21st century technology and cumulative scientific gains converge, we are on the cusp of a new era in spinal cord injury research.
