Your interest in our adult and pediatric research is greatly appreciated!
Spinal cord injury research is aimed at improving the health and wellness of individuals living with paralysis.
Spinal cord injury research enables the discovery of new treatments, improvement of current therapies, and refinement of policies that affect adults and children living with paralysis as well as their families, loved ones and caregivers.
Research studies rely on volunteers with the specific medical conditions for which we seek advances. Volunteers like you enable our success and gives us all hope for the future.
We maintain a database of those who are interested in participating in research along with details of the condition in order to match volunteers with the research studies that are enrolling participants.
Registering in the database is a simple process that will take approximately 20 minutes.
Make sure that you are able to receive emails from firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not receive an email within 20 minutes, check your spam folder and filters or contact your email administrator.
If you answer all of the questions and register yourself in the database, you may be contacted to participate in any of the studies we offer. Entering yourself in the database does not guarantee enrollment into any studies and you may not be contacted.
Individuals from the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center at the University of Louisville, the Institutional Review Board (IRB), the Human Subjects Protection Program Office (HSPPO), and other regulatory agencies may inspect these records. In all other respects, however, the data will be held in confidence to the extent permitted by law. Should the data be published, your identity will not be disclosed.
If you are an adult with a spinal cord injury, begin your registration in the database by creating an account.
If you have already created an account, just log in.
If you are the parent or guardian of a child with a spinal cord injury, we shall assist you with registering. Please contact us:
Thanks again for your interest!
