Neurotrauma Research Program (NRP)
The Neurotrauma Research Program (NRP) brings together neuroscientists, neurosurgeons, and clinicians in unprecedented collaborative scientific endeavours that are improving the lives of people affected by brain and spinal cord injury.
The NRP provides seed funding for vital neurotrauma research, providing opportunities and incentives to maintain Western Australia as a significant contributor to global neurotrauma research. As the only WA-based funding body for brain and spinal cord injury research, the NRP is a vital and unique provider of research funds.
The NRP’s mission is to support research into avoiding, understanding injury mechanisms and developing effective treatments for acquired trauma to the nervous system (brain and spinal trauma). The ultimate goal is to ensure that nobody has to live with permanent disability from spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury.
The world-class scientific research of the NRP is aimed at improving the lives of people affected by neurotrauma and the wider community, recognising the medical, social and psychological implications of these injuries.
