Ohio State Research Team Joins Spinal Cord Injury Model System Program


A $2.3 million, five year grant was awarded to The Ohio State University from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research to become a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Model Systems Center.

Ohio State and our researchers in the departments of Neurology and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is one of only 14 centers across the U.S. to receive this funding. The Central Ohio Regional Spinal Cord Injury System (CORSCIS) will provide a multidisciplinary system of rehabilitative care specifically designed to meet the needs of individuals with SCI ranging from acute care to rehabilitation and reintegration to the community.

Jan Schwab, MD, PhD, is director and principal investigator on the project. Jennifer Bogner, PhD, is co-director of the CORSCIS.

This website has been funded with financial assistance from Grant #H133A120086 awarded by the U.S. Department of Education, National Institute on Disability Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) to the Ohio Valley Center for Brain Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation for the current funding period of 10/01/2012 - 09/30/2017.
