The goal of the ‘SCI 2020: Launching a Decade for Disruption in Spinal Cord Injury Research’ conference is to initiate discussion across the SCI research community to launch a new decade of research that disrupts traditional barriers and brings about collaborative efforts to address the key research questions in spinal cord injury research. This conference is designed to be a comprehensive stakeholder’s meeting to bring diverse experience and voices together with this common goal. The participants will be challenged to critically evaluate the state of the science, assess areas of scientific, technological and community readiness, and identify the collaborations needed to change the trajectory of research and clinical opportunities for people with SCI.
To address and raise awareness of recent progress and current gaps in SCI research
To provide opportunities for collaboration across basic, translational, clinical research and consumer groups
To identify the top SCI research priorities for next 5-10 years — of and for the SCI research community — at the intersection of Scientific / Technological / Community Readiness
