Spinal Cord Research

Paralysis is on the rise and is the leading cause of disability in the United States, yet most patients still have little hope of walking again.  According to the American Academy of Pain Medicine, chronic pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.  

The Seattle Science Foundation will embark on a comprehensive spinal cord initiative that will further our efforts in better understanding the human spinal cord and hopefully, lead to novel and innovative solutions for patients suffering from spinal cord injuries, disease, and the debilitating effects of chronic pain.
