New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Spinal Cord Injury Research Board (SCIRB)

The Extramural Grants Administration Program works to further the efforts of the Spinal Cord Injury Research Board (SCIRB). Each year, approximately 1,000 New York residents suffer traumatic spinal cord injuries joining the nearly 282,000 people living in the United States with paralysis. SCIRB’s mission, since 1998, has been to support neurological spinal cord injury scientific research projects from leading researchers within New York State to find a cure for spinal cord injuries.
