The Ontario Spinal Cord Injury Research Network (OSCIRN)

The Ontario Spinal Cord Injury Network (OSCIRN) is a collaborative network of clinicians and scientists, working together within the five Academic Health Science Centres, to facilitate the conduct of multi-centre clinical research on topics related to pre-hospital care, acute treatment, rehabilitation and community re-integration of individuals with a spinal cord injury.  The Network’s mandate is:

1. translational research
2. research across the continuum
3. integrated knowledge translation and implementation
4. integrated health economics
5. provision for “horizontal” & “vertical” reserach
6. provision for investigator and industry driven research

The network is supported by the Canadian Spinal Research Organization (CRSO) and the Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation.
