The IRP foundations have the exclusive aim to promote basic and clinical research related to spinal cord injury. Research projects may address all aspects of CNS and spinal cord lesions, nerve regeneration, trophic support of lesioned neurons, and functional changes induced by lesions, preferentially in mammals.
