MEETING OF RESEARCH AND CLINICAL LEADERS, ADVOCATES, AND PATIENTS TO HIGHLIGHT THE NEED TO REINSTATE
SPINAL CORD INJURY RESEARCH FUNDING IN NEW YORK STATE
NYS has a unique and extremely productive Spinal Cord Injury Program (SCIRP) funded through a surcharge on traffic-ticket moving violations. From 1998 through 2009, SCIRP provided 70 million dollars for research in treatments for spinal cord injury. This investment produced important scientific advances and brought significant additional funding into NYS. However, since 2010, this money raised for paralysis research has been diverted to other unrelated purposes. We come together to urge NYS to reinstate this essential funding stream.
