Funding Opportunities for Fiscal Year 2013
The Fiscal Year 2013 (FY13) Defense Appropriations Act provides $30 million to the Department of Defense Spinal Cord Injury Research Program (SCIRP).

The vision of the SCIRP is to advance the treatment and management of spinal cord injury and ameliorate its consequences relevant to injured Service members. This program is administered by the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command through the Office of the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP).
